Viva Las Mujeres: Women Challenge Globalization

Listen:


Indigenous women organizing throughout Central America focus simultaneously on economic globalization issues and their rights as women. On this program from the Women’s Desk of the National Radio Project, indigenous women from Mexico and Honduras discuss their work. Each year they heighten their activities during “International Women’s Day.” We also look at how that day is, or isn’t, commemorated in the United States.

Featuring:
