Introducing myself and my journal: Mestiza sudamericana

Raquel Andrade
Posted September 18, 2010 from Peru

About Me: I've always been a feminist. I struggled with patriarchy in the private space as well as inside me. Feminism is an inexhaustible source of energy and healing power for me. I believe in a women's revolution to the world. I believe in autonomy and in the community, On the strength of the written and visual.

I believe in the body, love and sex.

I am a lesbian, and not so young feminist (28). I am passionate about politics, communication, creation and especially the struggle for a fairer world.

My Passions: feminism, ICT´s, anthropology, writting, poetry, photography

My Challenges: Getting to know more interesting, passionate and wise women.

My Vision for the Future: A world where the land, water and our body is ours.

My Areas of Expertise: Social Sciences, gender, sexuality, Lesbian issues, ICT´s for feminist porpuses

    Thanks you very much for those words Lilith, I am so excited about this community! Veo que hablas español no es así? Entonces puedo hablarte en chicano, chica. :D As i read in some other´s profile, i alos beliece comunnication is the missing key for changing the world. we can create amazing things, books, stories, organizations, etc, but if but we do not connect with each other, if we do not get inspired by others, we do not change.

    Well i must leave for now, my girlfriend is waiting for me!!

    Talking to you soon!!!!
