New Book: Daysi Rubiera Desafío al silencio [Challenging Silence]

Casa de las Américas presents “Mujeres en Línea,” a book presentation and discussion of Daysi Rubiera’s Desafío al silencio [Challenging Silence]. This book collects testimonies of battered women and their life stories, revealing the individual trajectories that led them to silence and breaking the silence about violence in the home. The panel discussion includes the participation of the author, Dr. Clotilde Proveyer (Professor at the University of Havana), poet Georgina Herrera, psychologist and editor of Social Sciences, Silvia Gutiérrez, and several of the interviewed women included in the book.

The activity will take place on Thursday, October 14, at 3:00pm at the Manuel Galich Room at Casa de las Américas, Havana, Cuba.
