[ENG] A day to mark Latin American and Caribbean black women’s struggle


They are less than 5% of the student body in the onsite undergraduate programs, just over 3% in distance education programs, and nearly 1% attending graduate school. These are the figures that size the presence of black students at UFPel. July 25 was the date chosen to honor the struggle of Latin American and Caribbean black women. For this reason, from July 26 to 27, the seminar “Discussing July 25, what do I have to do with it?” was held at UFPel and promoted by the Center for Affirmative Actions, the Center for Gender Issues and the Office for Inclusion and Diversity. The event focused on five paramount themes related to women: education, violence against women, women’s mental health, black icons, and entrepreneurship.
