Desperate to end impunity and the increasing number of femicides in their country, a group of Argentinian women used social media to ignite protests on the streets in 2015. The social outcry that inspired Ni una menos became a movement whose effect rippled throughout Latin America exposing more than ever the extreme forms of gender-based violence in the region. After more than two years documenting gender-based violence in several countries and interviewing activists on peace and social change for the documentary “Ser mujer en Latinoamérica”, it is clear women across the world are connected and awakening to work for more peaceful societies.

In this event, Natalia Bonilla will showcase the different degrees of gender-based violence in the region as well as examples of past and current social impact campaigns for peace in Argentina, Colombia, El Salvador, Brazil and Mexico.

As we explore innovation for social impact and social good, we will see in this case which examples have succeeded in the road towards gendered-peace and which have back-fired and why, posing a reflection on the challenges that remain shaping societies worldwide. 

Natalia is the Producer for Ser Mujer en Latinamerica, an independent transmedia project to showcase how thousands of women perceive different degrees of gender violence, gender inequality and gendered peace in the Latin American region. She has over a decade of experience in journalism covering human rights and peace deals referendums in Latin America.
