💜On March 6, 2020, just days before the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that the coronavirus was a pandemic, three British researchers - Clare Wenham, Julia Smith and Rosemary Morgan - published in the scientific journal The Lancet a Study titled COVID-19: The Impacts of the Outbreak on Gender.
🖤 Its worst predictions have come true to date: the pandemic has exacerbated gender inequality and the feminization of poverty, especially targeting essential workers, as indicated by the National Epidemiological Surveillance Network (RENAVE), where it states that Health personnel infected with COVID-19, 76.2% are women, compared to 23.8% of men.
Thus, any claim from 8M passed to 2021 not only is still in force, but is reinforced with even more data, so we must move forward. For which they were. For what they are. For which they will be. We are feminists 👩🔬👩💼👩🌾👩🔧👩🏭👷💻👩🏫👩🚀We are unstoppable.
📬 In this newsletter, through three initiatives that we consider complementary, we invite you to continue working together from feminism, environmentalism and anti-racism, especially in the defense of doubly discriminated partners, to strengthen the health of trans women through of the study of neovagina surgeries and to continue promoting a new education in early childhood where we all fit.

It is an organ with real and important health needs! You can become infected or suffer from an unhealthy microbial environment.
🦾 Transbiome aims to conduct a pilot study to help map the microbial diversity found in the neovaginas of trans women.

Espiral Educativa 🏫
👧 This educational cooperative arises from the experience of around 2 decades of the people who are part of it, learning from different schools and experimenting and implementing different educational methodologies and techniques.
✊ The educators of La Espiral Educativa do not make the leap to cooperativism by chance, but rather they do it consciously with the conviction that it is one of the most important paths that civil society must undertake to reverse the values of individualism, competitiveness and lack of solidarity that emanate from the current economic system and that are causing so much inequality and suffering.
🌬 Due to the new health needs of the pandemic, it is essential to reform their facilities to improve the ventilation of the classrooms.
