On March 8, thousands of men, women, young people gathered in Guatemala City to honor International Women’s Day in Guatemala.
With banners, chants, and music, men and women walked from the Guatemalan Supreme Court to Congress to the Public Prosecutor’s Office to Central Park. Despite the occasional machista comment from spectators on the sidewalk, the march is a celebratory one every year, open to anyone who believes in and fights for gender equality and justice. Sister Parish member communities Tierra Nueva I and II brought a bus packed with over 50 people in for the march.
We hope these photos share some of that celebratory spirit.
