Jenny is a sociologist and researcher on gender issues, women’s human rights, feminist movement from El Salvador. She is deeply passionate about and committed to work on empowering women who have faced some type of violence and / or gender discrimination. Since 2011, she has participated in Salvadorian feminist women spaces, carrying out protest actions against violence against women by public state agents, lesbian-phobia, positioning of autonomous feminism, etc. Currently, she is pursuing a Postgraduate degree on gender and feminist studies at the UNAM. “I consider that in the violent context I live in, young feminist women contribute to develop peace relationships, mostly, sisterhood relationships through generation of healthy, empathetic and non-dependable ties. I think this is one of the most important points that the feminist movement should prioritise,” she says. Jenny is fluent in Spanish.
