The Indigenous Woman

Gender equality

Our proposal on gender equality is based on the principle of complementarity of the indigenous peoples where, despite the fact that we are different in gender, age, size, strength or any other characteristic, we are equal in terms of dignity and rights.

Indigenous world-views see the relationship between the sexes as based on duality, complementarity and balance, arising from harmony, comprehension and mutual respect. Neither sex is more important than the other, but each needs the other in order to exist.

The institutional actions of CHIRAPAQ and those of its team members promote gender equality both within our association and in our personal relationships outside it.
