Abstract

We share this history so that the world can see how, as the Red de Mujeres Cha-
parralunas por la Paz (Chaparralunas Women’s Network for Peace), we’ve
managed over nearly 20 years of organizing, to resist in our territory without having to leave it. We had to keep a low profile for many years. In the meanwhile, we educated ourselves and certified our elementary and high school equivalencies. Now that we are professionals, we advocate for women-centered public policy and the prevention of violence against women, and we occupy participation spaces. It is this history of highs and lows and peacebuilding amid
violence that we tell in this book.
