About this event
Over the past decade, across Latin America, the movement for women’s empowerment has continued to grow. In Argentina, the hashtag #NiUnaMenos (“Not One Less”) is the battle cry for the largest feminist movement ever seen in the western hemisphere, raising awareness about and fighting against gender-based violence. On the eve of Argentina’s independence day, join for a discussion about the movement, through the lens of the popular music industry, with three Argentine voices: singer-activist Miss Bolivia, journalist Humphrey Inzillo, and Paula Rivera, vice president of the National Institute of Music.
