Violence Against Women

BBC World Service, Un violador en tu camino, de Las Tesis: cómo se convirtió en un himno feminista mundial, BBC News Mundo, 2019.

Women fighting violence against women have used many different artistic methods: painting, film, poetry and performance art. From Gentileschi’s Susanna and the Elders in 1610 to the Las Tesis protests in 2019, women around the world use the arts to keep their outrage visible.

On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women on November 25, 2019, a Chilean feminist group—Las Tesis—performed a piece protesting violence against women. Videos of the performance went viral, spreading across the world and similar protest pieces were performed in Mexico, the United States, Columbia, France, Spain and the United Kingdom.
