Since the workshop, I have never felt that I was alone in this struggle. I feel that my ‘companeras’ in the workshop are family. I feel protected, because I know that there will always be somebody to give me a hand. And you can be sure as hell that I am going to continue working for the women of my neighbourhood, now with more experience, more knowledge… now I don’t feel ashamed, I know what I am talking about. Emerenciana Lopez Martinez, participant in a 1990 SEDEPAC legal-awareness workshop.
