Grupo de Estudios Sobre la Mujer Rosario Castellanos (GESMujer)

Interns will participate in the process of the Cooperative Women's Network for a Culture of Peace, comprised of 24 indigenous, mestizo, and Afro-Mexican promotoras representing approximately 12 community groups (two women per group) in the state of Oaxaca. The promotoras gather for three days every two months in a learning community where tools are shared to help them build a methodological plan according to their own community’s conditions.
