Female while in Mexico
“I’m a writer based in Mexico City. I write in Spanish and in English; the language I choose to write a story in, is to me, as important a decision as are narrator, tone, or even plot. The driving force behind my current work is motherhood in the midst of a failing country. I’m working around a topic I call ‘Female while in Mexico’ that reflects on the dangers of being a woman in a country that has one of the highest rates of femicide in the world, and being a mother of a girl in such an environment. I’ve written and published a novel on the specific topic of gender violence in Mexico, but I find that I still have a lot to explore on the issue of motherhood in a war ridden country, what female writers can do to educate girls on this emergency situation, and the role that power plays in the slaying of our girls.”
