The massacre at Tlatelolco on October 2, 1968, in response to the Student Movement is a brutal story of a repressive government attempting to control its citizens through violence and fear. An estimated 325 unarmed Mexican youths were killed and thousands more injured while trapped — by the police and the military — in a residential square during a peaceful political student protest. What had happened to their children was almost incomprehensible to the parents of the victims.
Art Exhibition: Quien Calla, Otorga (Silence Means Conscent) celebrates women of México past and present. While some of those represented are controversial figures in history, all are undeniably powerful. Their strength inspires the next generation of young women to find their voices and use their minds for positive change..
Feminine energy is breaking out around the world. Women are taking control as political leaders and active fighters in the military and rebel groups. But while the number of current female leaders – excluding monarchs and figureheads – has more than doubled since 2000, most of the world’s nations have never been led by a woman (Pew Research Center, March 8, 2017). We are already familiar with what happens when men are in power. Male energy has led us to endless wars, to mass destruction and devastation of our planet and its natural resources, to genocide. It is time for change and for the feminine energy to take the lead.
