Spanish Language Version of "Like a Woman" Released; Campesinas Rising Campaign Announced for 25 March
SPANISH-LANGUAGE VERSION OF "LIKE A WOMAN" RELEASED
RECORDED BY KIKE JIMÉNEZ OF THE VOICE MEXICO AND SEAN O'CONNELL
Just out! Kike Jiménez (finalist on The Voice Mexico) and Sean O'Connell - together with One Billion Rising - release "Mujer Valiente" – the Spanish language translation of "Like a Woman" released on International Women's Day. Produced by One Billion Rising Mexico global coordinator Andres Naime, "Mujer Valiente" debuted live last night following a performance of "The Vagina Monologues" in Mexico City.
"We need this type of movement in 2019. Many of us young people believe there's no such thing as misogyny or gender-based violence anymore, when really it's as strong as ever. Every day there are new cases of missing women, many sold, murdered, or victims of violence at home. It is so important that we create consciousness and awareness that these are real and actual problems that cannot be ignored. It's an honor to be a voice for this amazing cause." - Kike Jiménez, singer of "Mujer Valiente."
"Mujer Valiente" and "Like a Woman" are part of V-Day's 20th anniversary (V20) initiative to create new disruptive art pieces that inspire people to act. Both versions will now be part of the One Billion Rising activist-led events that take place across the globe.
