Women in a self-help/sharing group from a neighborhood in Managua. The Cultural Center of Batahola Norte (CCBN) supports a gender-based violence prevention project funded through the Trocaire foundation. In this integral project, psychologists from the CCBN work with groups of women, men, adolescents, and children.

This is from one of the first talleres that I’ve participated in and hope to continue to be more connected with these beautiful women.

In this exercise, women wrote on ribbon the oppressive words and statements that have been barriers to them in their lives. Then, each took turns, saying what they were going to change about those lies, and proceeded to destroy their ribbon.
