Challenge

While we were closed during the COVID 19 pandemics, our office suffered two floodings that caused the loss and severe damage of files, furniture, computers, cameras, and many books. We need urgent help to recover! We provide all types of documents and materials for research and activism on feminism and sexual diversity. Many of these resources cannot be found in other libraries, and should we not recover them, they will be lost for good.

Solution

This project will help us collect the funds to replace the damaged files and books, and also to open back to the public the feminist and transinclusive library that hosts Tierra Violeta.

Long-Term Impact

Feminaria is a specialized library, unique in its kind in Latin America with 21.000 books dating from the XIX century to date, files and other materials on feminisms, gender, women and sexual diversity. We are eager to reopen our doors for the community!
