Discurso de Ela Bhatt

Descripción

Because where there is poverty, there is injustice. There is exploitation—of the individual, of the community and of the environment. Where there is poverty, there is discrimination. Where there is poverty, there is fear and intimidation in the community, in the family, in the work environment. Where there is poverty, we can assume rigid hierarchy and inequality. Consequently, where there is poverty, there is also enormous vulnerability. Poverty is a form of violence; it does not respect human labor, it strips a person of humanity, and it takes away their freedom.

Orientación:

A través de este breve e intenso discurso podemos trabajar el auténtico significado de la pobreza como una consecuencia de la inequidad social. La importancia de nuestras acciones como consumidores para perpetuar o revertir la pobreza. Y también conocer la existencia de iniciativas de mujeres que en todo el mundo trabajan por la superación de la pobreza.
