Special Topics in Iberian and Latin American Studies; Speaking Up/Out: Women Writers and Feminist Social Movements in Contemporary Latin America

The feminist song The rapist is You - originally performed by the collective "Las Tesis" in Valparaiso (Chile) - has become a global hymn to protest violence against women. The performance was based on the work of anthropologist Rita Segato, whose studies have exposed power structures and the systematic violations of women s rights. By reading contemporary women writers, and by working on feminist social movements, we will explore what Segato has defined as the war against women.
