No-recipe Woman, at La Guajira
June 6, 2012
Fabrina Acosta, a Guajiran female writer and psychologist visited Cerrejón facilities and gave a talk on her latest book “Mujer sin receta” (Woman without Recipe).
With the presence of 45 women from the Tabaco, Oreganal, Los Remedios, Tamaquito II, Barrancón, Tekia (neighbouring the railroad track) and Albania communities, the talk covered subjects such as the significance of women’s role in the family and in society; female emotions, frustrations and anxieties; and the strengthening of woman’s self-esteem before the opposite sex.
For two hours, the attendees actively participated, conducted activities and felt identified with the theme of the book. At the end of the event, each participant received a copy of the book.
“It is good to know that women are being taken into account; this was a constructive encounter. Perhaps, this kind of talks helps us find the path of our lives. Now, we make comments on what we read in the book. This event was important for all of us”, says Yorkelys Carriaga, from the Los Remedios community.
