Women against Impunity 2020

Mexican journalist and writer Elena Poniatowska Amor talks about how the contemporary social, political, economic, symbolic and cultural landscape has been affected and re-written by two global realities: the Covid-19 pandemic and capitalism. She analyses how they feed into each other, affecting the most vulnerable people, considered to be dispensable or disposable from a western perspective.


Elena Poniatowska Amor. Born in Paris in 1932 but of Mexican nationality, she was the first woman to receive the National Journalism Award. Her works include La Noche de Tlatelolco (translated into English as Massacre in Mexico), which became an overnight classic when it was published and won the Xavier Villaurrutia Award, although the author turned it down asking who would award the dead.

Moderated by: Adilia de las Mercedes, director of the Association of Guatemalan Women (AMG).

Coordinated by: Association of Guatemalan Women (AMG).
