  • Humphrey School of Public Affairs (map)

A new movement condemning violence against women has blossomed in Latin America – Not One Woman Less, Ni Una Menos. On June 3, 2015 an estimated 300,000 participants marched in Buenos Aires, Argentina. On August 13, 2016500,000 people marched in Lima and other cities in Peru. And, on October 19, 2016 another massive march took place in Argentina, with simultaneous marches in Mexico, Chile, Uruguay and Paraguay. Violence against women is an old problem, but Ni Una Menos demonstrates that activism against it has taken on new proportions. This event brings organizers of the Argentine and Peruvian movements to campus to discuss the making of this movement including the artistic and social media strategies it has employed, the global network it has created, and its impact on policy and culture.

Featuring Ni Una Menos activists: María Pia López of Argentina and Alejandra Ballón Gutiérrez of Peru.  López is a sociologist and a novelist, and has brought literature to bear on the movement.  Ballón-Gutiérrez is an anthropologist and artist, and has brought performance art into the Peruvian movements’ strategic repertoire.
