Female empowerment and independence is an ever present theme at TRUSS, so we asked the women of our workshop in Oaxaca City for their perspective on what it means to be woman in Oaxaca in 2019:

“Being a women is both a challenge and something marvelous. We are capable of taking care of ourselves and making decisions on our own. We know our objectives and how to achieve them no matter what obstacles we encounter along the way. I feel empowered as a woman when I make decisions by myself and am responsible for the outcome, whatever it may be.”
