This video was created by Ceiba's Sololá team and a group of women from its Leadership and Literacy Schools.
It shares stories that show how women experience violence in their communities and across Guatemala. Through this work, we are fighting to break the circle of silence and bring to light the violence women suffer every day.
The women who participated in this video, understanding that gendered violence is a global problem, expressed a strong desire to share their stories with women across the world. For this reason, English subtitles have been added. Please feel free to show and share this video and let us know in the comments section below if you have done so.
The original video in Spanish is available here: vimeo.com/38188316
