Peru’s ‘Malcriadas’ (VIDEO)

The Caracas-based pan-Latin American TV station TeleSUR reports on a Peruvian newspaper that regular degrades women, depicting scantily clad ladies in a section called “Malcriadas” (women who behave badly). In an effort to combat such forms of misogyny, one peruana, Kelly Elfaro, has produced a calendar which highlights Latina rebels of the past and present.

The idea behind this calendar is to show other ‘malcriadas,’ but with a different meaning. [These are] women who, because of their bad behavior, have made revolutions and changes throughout the history of our country.
