Mexican culture, politics, and economics through the lens of women´s
experiences and struggles for social justice. Study how women from
various backgrounds (i.e. Indigenous, students, workers) have been
affected by the neoliberal model of globalization and the kinds

and strengthen links between women of different countries (whose
lives in an increasingly globalized world are more interrelated
than ever) by sharing our respective struggles for justice and equality.
