3 women books to accompany # 8M

The 8th of March is the day of commemoration. Women and collectives of feminists are certainly preparing to raise their voices and manifest themselves against the violent power of the masses in Mexico, where the day – in the world – 10 girls, adolescents and women are addicted.

Sorority and light against the violence of the genus also include a space in the books. From the same and with different genres and styles, authors denounce the feminists in the country, explicitly abortion and abortion of the diversity of feminism in the 21st century.

With a selection of three works, we want to be in this # 8M company with the stories of women who decide to abandon the silence and justice of the abuses and the violences of those women who are living, but also for those who are here.

These stories of stories with a miraculous feminist include a judicial battle, the experience of women who saw the abortion and the life of Hermila Galindo, a Mexican woman, a feminist and a revolutionary who worked for the right of women to vote.

‘El roedor’

We talk with The road, de la abogada y maestra en Derechos Humanos Heidi Putscher Basave (editorial Grijalbo, 2022). En este libro, la autora habla de los abusos y las violaciones que el founder of La Ciudad de las Ideas, el diplomatico y empresario Andres Roemer, cometió en contra de 61 mujeres.

Putscher revisa 41 denuncias y hace una serie chronologic de los hechos atribuidos a Roemer. With it, he started the process of finding out the words and the channels of denunciation and communication that he found in the experience of one of Roemer’s victories.

In a communicated emitido el pasado 18 de febrero, la Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Educación, la Ciencia y la Cultura (Unesco) recordo que desde 2021 suspendió de todo tipo de cooperación con Roemer, además de su politica de cero tolerancia a todas las formas de acoso.

“The UNESCO express is a consideration for all and all of the dead women and their trust in the Mexican authorities for the implementation of this process in this case,” he said.


Con Interruption (editorial Ariel, 2022), Sandra Vizzavona, advocate in the Laboratory Derecho and Integrate of the Collegium of Advocates of Paris since January 2000, presented a free book, in which abortion is the subject of abortion and part of the testimonies of women of marital status .

Entre el sometimiento y el silencio a la rececion de si se desea ser madre o no, Vizzavona habla desde la intimidad, el dolor, las dudas y los miedos que genera la la abortion decision. I also said that my mother should be a voluntary and ten-year decision, but not allowed.

Interruption divide into two parts. In the first instance, Vizzavona presents the testimonies of women who will be able to perform a legal abortion, which is very important – in many cases – but it does not imply that patients will be abused, offended and treated with care.

In the second part of the work, the experiences of women who want to repeat a clandestine abortion are included. In some cases, the middle and the feeling of guilt are latent.

Figures from the World Cup of Health (OMS), updated in November 2021, are sessile that every 10 months have been voluntarily interrupted, while 45% of abortions are realized in poor conditions and 97% of them practice in countries.

“I don’t want to be allowed to talk to others,” wrote Vizzavona.

‘No me cerrarán los labios’

Finally, the third recommendation for accompanying this # 8M is the historical novella Don’t look for me (editorial Gijalbo) (2021), by Abia Castillo, guionist and Mexican author who wrote about Hermila Galindo, a feminist woman, revolutionary and suffragette in Mexico.

Hermila Galindo was born in Durango and was one of the women who in the period of the Revolution participated in the manner of activation in public life and politics of the country. His work was very important in the examples of decisions in favor of the right of Mexican women.

His activism in favor of women counselors, together with other Mexican feminists —Elena Torres, Refugio García, Amalia Caballero de Castillo Ledón, Margarita García Flores and many more—, who in 1955 acquired Mexican women and her example by example. right to vote in federal elections.

Yes Don’t look for me es una novela —ficción—, gran parte de lo que la autora narra se basa en lo documentado por la doctora Rosa María Valles Ruiz, quien ha sido la principal biógrafa de Hermila Galindo.
