8M BREAKING THE SAME CHAINS
LOCAL HEROIN TRUE STORIES
The artistic, social and educational project Real Histories of Local Heroines, was born from the desire to make women visible and give them the leading role that corresponds to them in a society that has historically linked them to the domestic sphere.
The project has among its objectives, to make the invisible visible, taking women out of the private space, to place them in the public sphere, using tools such as contemporary art and popular culture. With this project developed in several phases, we want to make palpable the daily and silent heroism of all women who for centuries - and even today - hold the weight of society, empowering the participating communities.
Finally, we want to invite you to reflect on the role assigned to women, to highlight the burdens and responsibilities that have been imposed on them and question them, this being the first step in the construction of a more equitable, just and responsible society.
Again, reference is made to the aesthetics and image of Wonder Woman for its strong link with the feminist currents of the 1960s in the US and for being a symbolic icon of these currents.
