“Behind every great man is a woman.” Frequent tribute dubious praise: it reduces women to the status of chair back. The traditional role: the woman is devoted daughter, devoted wife, mother sacrificed, widow correct. She obeys, decorate, comfort and quiet. In the official history, the faithful shadow deserves only silence. At best, it gives an occasional mention of the ladies of the heroes. But the real story, another woman looks out through the bars of the cage. Sometimes, there is no choice but to acknowledge its existence. This is the case of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, which she herself could have been avoided so high and disturbing talent, or Manuela Saez and his brilliant life. But that if: NOTHING IS SAID OF THE CAPTAIN BLACK WOMAN OR INDIAN WOMAN JOLTED BEATEN COLONIAL TROOPS BEFORE THE WAR OF INDEPENDENCE . HONORABLE THAN IN THIS ACT OF SILENCE, JAMAICA HAS RECOGNIZED AS A NANNY NATIONAL HEROINE: NANNY, THE SLAVE BRAVIA, HALF WOMAN AND HALF GODDESS, WANTING TO FREEDOM LED LOS CIMARRONES WINDWARD AND HUMILIATED THE ENGLISH ARMY, TWO CENTURIES AGO AND etc..
DESCOBRI QUE MINA ARMA O É QUE A MEMORIA GUARDA
(I discovered that my gun is what the memory save)
I have the body full of questions and certainties.
talk to all the body and not just with words.
Put the body, put life.
Thanks to Nazza stencil for his words and pictures…
