41 girls and teenagers from Mexico City, Chiapas, Guanajuato, Hidalgo, Jalisco, Michoacán, Oaxaca, Puebla and Veracruz, participants from CIDES, Ednica, Fondo Semillas, Sueniños, Melel Xojobal, Vientos Culturales, Aldeas Infantiles SOS, Visión Mundial, Educadys, SEIINAC, CODENI, Calpulli, El Taller and Matraca, met at the First National Encounter of Girls and Adolescents "Girls fighting and the world transforming" on October 11 and 12 in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas.

During these days, participants were able to learn about the realities of girls and adolescents in the country, participate in dance, menstruation, self-defense, yoga and gender workshops, discuss about feminism and machismo in their contexts, learning about your rights to recognize and exercise them.

The girls who are part of the education project participated in this process, being able to share with other girls and adolescents working in the State, and from other States, their experiences, their realities and the particular challenges they face as girls, indigenous and workers. After the two days of Encuentro, they made a declaration in which, among other things, they made certain demands to key actors:

"We ask the authorities to exercise their office in a correct manner. That more surveillance cameras be put in cities to avoid femicides and sexual harassment.

To society in general that eliminates the stereotypes that exist about women and is open to other ways of thinking and acting.

We demand that the government and society listen to us in our families and schools.

We demand that the protection prosecutors give us fair treatment and help us when we denounce if we are beaten or mistreated.

We demand that companies pay a fair and equal salary for women and men.

We hope that our demands are not left in words and that society supports us in this cause."

The experience, unique in Mexico, was a space of encounter and struggle that, we hope, multiplies across borders.
