Feminism in Guatemala

Enjoy this photo and description shared with us by Claire Bransky, a St. Olaf student currently abroad on our Central America program!

Claire, Ainsley, Judith, Guatemala 2016

This is my classmate Ainsley Kilpatrick, my professor Judith García, and me singing “El sexo débil” as part of our final for Women in Latino Literature at Casa Xelajú in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. We spent five weeks reading novels, discussing feminism, and learning about gender norms as the first segment of Social Change in Central America. Ainsley and I decided to make our final presentation about the plurality of feminisms – a controversial topic in Guatemala – and we finished by singing our new favorite song.

As Judith loves to say, “Mujeres al poder!”
