Episode : My Greatest Inspiration

Andrea Regina Español Pérez-407-B. Her name is Maria Luisa Enriquez Garduño or as I call her “Malu”, she was born August 19 1947. She used to live in a house made of adobe; around there was a lot of vegetation such as trees, flowers, plants, etc. Taking advantage of the environment they survived planting different seeds as well as selling their products. She looked up to her mom because she had a strong character but due to was a town with a considerable distance from the city there was a lot of sexism which lead to her mom being submissive and obey her husband without a complain; her parents were analfabet and humble people which made difficult to try getting ahead 9 children.

Episode : Fighting with a man’s world

A Podcast Driver 403-B In the present, women are fighting for equity and equal rights between men and women, in addition to the eradication of gender and domestic violence, something that before, we could never have imagined My name is Diego and today we are going to talk about the sexism that the women live in the past, this, from the point of view of our guest, a woman that need to be strong,and had to go against stereotypes and canons of women. First i am going to talk about her life, she was a little and normal girl that played with dolls, studying and helping with her parents business. She tells us that her childhood was a little sad because she had authoritarian parents that didn't let her do many things when she was a child “because she was a woman” nowadays, we know that that is sexism . Nevertheless she was able to earn an universitary education and a diploma in managerial marketing. She is now a food chemist and gives training in important organisms like SAGARPA, she works in Mexico Calidad Suprema, work in which she was envied by the same women who were marked by ideologies that they couldn't do high-position activities, so when she reached a high position, and showing them that she could, they began to give her problems and make her work more difficult, so we can conclude that the sexism is also being practiced by women. Today the women opportunities still being a few, but we also advanced (by the fightings of rights and all the work the women do now for these) in eradicate this behaviors that don't let us the progress as a society
