ReconcilingWorks is incredibly fortunate to have Anita Pena Saavedra volunteer with us in the office for the month of February.
Anita is a Public Administrator, and is studying to receive her masters in Gender Studies and Latin American culture at The University of Chile. Her thesis is about the feminist movement in Chile. She works for www.epes.cl, a foundation for health promotion in Chile, and also teaches public policy and gender at Andrés Bello National University. Anita also is a teaching assistant for cultural studies, psychoanalysis, literature and gender. Anita considers herself a strong feminist and works frequently with www.nomasviolenciacontramujeres.cl.
“I am a feminist because I feel injustice against women and believe in the social struggle to transform the world,” Anita says. “I have dreams for a world without discrimination. I hope all people can be and love with freedom. I wholeheartedly thank you for this opportunity.
Please help us welcome Anita Peña Saavedra to the ReconcilingWorks family! We are grateful for her energy and smile that she brings to our workplace. Thanks may be posted here on facebook.
