Throughout our history we have strengthened ties of gender’s identity and class through symbols that also have fueled an imaginary active resistance, to the region, the country and the world.

Our Resistance Symbols

ColorsThey are an important part of our symbology.

BlackWe assume the color black as a sign of strength against the pain, as a symbol of rejection of violence as a way to make clear what many do not want to see: a mourning war that leaves everyone, especially women, who continue to claim and claiming that "We do not give birth and we do not forge children for war."
