Celebrating Women’s History Month

Ser Mujer

Ser Mujer celebrates Women’s History Month with films, talks and events for all ages. A coalition of 20 Mexican, American, Canadian and Mexican-American women of all ages, Ser Mujer is proud to present a month-long series of events designed to promote the commonality of women’s issues across cultures, to raise awareness of their challenges and to celebrate their accomplishments and contributions.

On March 6 at 7 PM in El Sindicato at Recreo 4, Ser Mujer will present the documentary,  “Two Americans,” a cautionary tale about the brutal separation of families as a result of deportation, and the direction immigration policies are headed in the US, but also a hopeful exploration on the power of resiliency.  Filmmaker Valeria Fernández will join us to discuss current policies and the outcome of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s political and criminal fate after President Donald Trump issued an executive pardon for him in August of last year.

March 7 brings the opening of WOMAN UNFOLDING, an art show presenting the work of San Miguel’s women artists focusing on the theme of women in all our stages, ages, views and our active lives. The exhibit will be shown on the walls of the Cafe Santa Ana and throughout the Biblioteca for the month of March.  WOMAN UNFOLDING continues with a second opening March 8 at 6 PM at La Huipilista Artspace, Julian Carillo 1 in Colonia Guadalupe.

Also showing on March 7 at 1:00 PM in the Santa Ana theater in the Biblioteca is the film "Equal means Equal,” a powerful documentary film by Kamala Lopez on how women are treated in the U.S. today – from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault.
 Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system. Her interviews feature legal experts, ordinary women and top-line feminists (including Eleanor Smeal and Gloria Steinem), who are still making a case for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment decades later.

Ser Mujer will be presenting these events in English and in Spanish.  Fees will be reasonable and affordable for all and no one will be turned away.  For a complete description of all events and a month-long calendar in English and in Spanish, please visit our website at
