The Bolivarian Revolution has always worked to put social inclusion at the very center of its political program, focusing on attending to the needs of the most marginalized. In a capitalist patriarchal system this meant expanding the political participation of women; but this also doubled the social reproduction work of women, who found themselves working, taking care of their families and taking care of the community.

Nonetheless, Venezuelan women today continue to organize and fight for equality, struggling to end machista violence and secure recognition of their sexual and reproductive rights.

In honor of International Working Women’s Day on March 8th, we’re going to talk about the gains and the challenges facing the feminist movement in Venezuela and will speak with Daniela Inojosa, a long time feminist and founder of Tinta Violeta.
