Lorieta Tenorio, 30

"Guys tell girls they are hot, or say things that have an even stronger sexual connotations. I want to eradicate these practices, which have become so common that they almost seem normal and we think we have to put up with it because if we complain we’re just women acting hysterically over a little issue in a world that has much bigger problems.”


“In the 1980s Chile’s feminist movement focused on other issues because we were living under a dictatorship, but now the movement needs to adapt to the context in which we live today.

"Feminism today is about positioning ourselves in a way that opts for radical change in all institutions — the state, church, school, our families. Maybe that makes me a utopian or a radical, but we have to head in that direction. We can’t conform."
