Argentina: rap, reform and gender rights

From: Generation Change

An activist and a rapper confront violence against women and explore the country’s legacy of protest.

In 2010, Argentina became the first country in the region to legalize same-sex marriage, and decriminalized abortion in 2020 after a campaign that inspired others around the world.

But women are murdered almost every day in Argentina.

In this episode, activist Ornella Steffanazzi and rapper La Joaqui speak out against misogyny, sexism and gender-based violence.

Steffanazzi is coordinator of the National Anti-Violence Hotline and is at the forefront of the fight for women and LGBTQ+ rights.

La Joaqui has broken the glass ceiling in rapid succession and is taking other women with her.
