With women at home, agrarian reform will not advance! Those words from Esperanza Cardona, a powerful grassroots leader from Honduras, kicked off a recent Grassroots International event lifting up the Global Campaign to End Violence Against Women.
The video below includes Esperanza’s presentation (beginning at 6:20), which follows her introduction by Chung-Wha Hong, Executive Director of Grassroots International.
Esperanza is the Coordinator of the Central American Regional Women’s Commission of the Via Campesina, a Grassroots International partner. We want to especially thank Amelie Ratliff for opening her home for the gathering, as well as Margo Guernsey for creating this video for those who could not attend.
