feminist movement


Though a growing force, feminism is still relatively new to Peru, and essentially urban. However, there are two major feminist groups: Flora Tristan, Avenida Arenales 601, Lima, which is allied to the United Left and whose basic tenet is “first socialism, then the feminist revolution”; and the less radical Peru Mujer, though neither of these are likely to be of enormous interest to travellers.
Peru’s one feminist magazine , Mujeres y Sociedad ( Women and Society), is published quarterly. For other literature and advice, try Flora Tristan, the Libreria de la Mujer bookshop in Avenida Arenales, Lima; or the Women’s Centre, Quilca, Lima, which is run by nuns. The Peruvian Women’s Association (Association Peru Mujer) can be contacted at Leon Velarde 1275, Lima (tel 01/422-3655, 441-5187 or 471-1524).
