CHAPTER 10: MARY'S REFLECTIONS
WHAT PANDEMIC?
Here we are, immersed in the pandemic, afraid for our well-being, that of our family and friends. Now we learn to take better care of ourselves, to take precautions about health and hygiene.
And there is the other pandemic, the one that women suffer every day. Yes, a femicide every 23 hours.

The macho violence that women suffer from as children and that we endure and naturalize on a daily basis and sometimes we don't know how to ask for help. So, when your partner beat her up and after much thought, you are going to report it, Zas! They make fun of you, they make fun of you, you're not understood at all. Getting out of the circle of violence, of that swamp is a slow process and not easy.
But I know women who are capable of putting their feet in the mud for another woman, and this is where the feminists I have the honor of knowing come in. They are capable of confronting machismo, those who make you feel that you are not and will not be alone, let's learn what sorority is possible in this hostile world, that's why I invite them to the union between women, let's build "us" to each other. Let us not be scandalized by those who fight, but by those who die, those who are violated.
Please, my friend, be part of the revolution as the engine of social change.
No less about violence for everyone: women, lesbians, trans, transvestites, bisexuals, and non-binaries.
Remember that if you are alone with your abuser call 144 or go to the pharmacy and ask for a red mask, it's a sign that you need help.

Reflections in pandemic: Is another education possible?

In a context where the debate about face-to-face or virtual classes does not cease and where the situation is being exploited with interests, we believe it is important to reflect on another possible education: not to open or not to open, but how.

Until when? The great debt with mental health
