Women Empowered – esperansa

Esperansa, 9
Ixtahuacan, Guatemala

Esperansa is the first girl in her family to attend school. Her mother, Catarina, although illiterate, leads a group of 80 indigenous women organized by CARE in their struggle to gain gender equality and end racial discrimination in Ixtahuacan where the indigenous Mayan people are marginalized by the “ladinos”. Even within the Mayan community, women and girls are discriminated against with regard to education and social justice. Mayan women are the marginalized of the marginalized, and violence against them is widespread.
