In recent years , the state of Chihuahua has gone through a strong wave of violence in which a large number of women were victims of femicide , leaving a hole not only in their families , but also in their communities.
The enormous impact of this situation has generated a revolutionary actitud and drive us to bring the best out of us, the women.
We are absolutely convinced that it is time to speak in a positive way about Chihuahua and female community by inviting society to speak about how to improve woman living conditions. It is high time to talk about the improvements, the achievements , the victories , the unity . Let’s enhance the beauty , the courage and the desire to succeed , regardless ethnic and cultural differences that make up our society.
And the best moment to achieve this project is by exposing the pictures when the month that conmemorate the International Women Day takes place: March.
We are all different but we have a common goal : " The gender equity and respect our dignity."
SE ' WA in Raramuri , an indigenous language, means flower and CHIH means comes frome the abreviation of our City Chihuahua, México. Having as a result "the flower of Chihuahua"
We decided to name this project SE´WA´CHIH as we see Chihuahua´s women are sprouting.
Note: SE'WA comes from the indigenous Raramuri language . The Tarahumara or Raramuri are a native people of Mexico , settled in the territory of the state of Chihuahua.
