Making the invisible, visible: In Nicaragua, women journalists call for equality

GRANADA, Nicaragua – Women in bright colored dresses indicative of their various ethnic backgrounds marched despite the rain in the colonial city of Granada on Tuesday to call for an end to global violence against women.

Las mujeres mojadas, jamás serán calladas,” they chanted, playfully refitting the popular chant, “the people united, will never be defeated,” to one more appropriate for the weather.

“We know that a march is not necessarily going to make tangible change, but what it does is it establishes that we are not complacent, that we are aware, and that we will continue to make the invisible visible,” Sue Ann Barratt told The Tico Times during the march. Barratt is from Trinidad and Tobago.
