What If You Knew Now What Women Knew Then?
Normalizing our participation in other people’s activity helps break down the barriers, helps equal out expectations when you have a better understanding of what they’re experiencing. What would you do for an amiga isolated in her diversity?
This week, Consuelo shares stories from her Peruvian grandmother that had it easier 100 years ago. As a widow in 1930, Maria Luisa Menendez was supported by her community to run a sugar cane ranch and raise 3 daughters on her own. Her daughters would become successful career women here in the U.S. while thriving in their Peruvian culture.
