In this exhibition you can visualize the time of feminine empowerment and the massive marches that have been carried out to demand the end of feminicide and violence against women in any of its forms. You can also see artistic works that show both the economic and labor inequality of gender, as the green tide that emerged this year in favor of the legalization of abortion in Argentina.
The exhibition can be visited at Xochicuicatl, the association of Latin American women, which was born with the idea of supporting immigrant women in Latin America. For this, advice, accompaniments, language courses, workshops, talks and various activities are offered in the place to actively participate in the social and cultural life of the city of Berlin.

Its director Marcela Villanueva affirmed that on November 12, 100 years of the feminine vote in Germany were fulfilled. According to her, as all the rights that the woman has acquired so far was a struggle, therefore the idea was to honor that day and what better to show what are the battles for equality that are taking place today in Latin America.
According to figures given by the federal family minister, Franziska Giffey, in 2017 there were 147 femicides, mostly carried out by Germans. In addition, 82 percent of the cases of violence that occurred were against women. The figures also show that the problem is not only part of Latin America, but that it is found all over the world. For this, it is necessary to make a call with exhibitions like this and continue in the fight against violence against women.
