Women’s rights in Mexico will be the topic in an upcoming Midday Rotary Club presentation.  Alejandra Cervantes, a young, dynamic professional from Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) will offer insight on this fascinating subject that is largely overlooked by many residents.

Over the last 20 years, women’s rights in Mexico has seen significant progress. Legislations in favor of women as well as direct actions by the women themselves have given women more access to a life free of violence, a voice in politics, improvements in health services. Women are receiving more years of education and access to higher education. Also better employment and access to social services. Although these achievements have not always translated into better opportunities, things are improving.

This talk will provide valuable information about the accomplishments Mexico has made regarding pro-women legislations, the increase of women representatives in the national congress, the creation of national health care services, decriminalization of abortion, and the inclusion of women in the labor and education market.  Ms. Cervantes will also discuss the work that still needs to be done in Mexico to tackle discrimination and formulate policies that will result in a an equal gender society.


Alejandra Cervantes holds an MA in Education by Incarnate Word University and a BA in Language Teaching by UNAM. She came to San Miguel when she was called to co-coordinate the language department at UNAM San Miguel de Allende. She currently teaches at AHA. Her interests are related to the innovation and use of technology in education, learning strategies and gender studies.

The presentation is Tuesday, June 12th  at 12:00 PM at the Hotel Mission on Salida a Queretaro.  Parking is free and the hotel is easily accessible by bus.

Rotary is where neighbors, friends and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders and take action to create lasting change. For more information, contact President Fred Collins at [email protected] and see www.RotarySMAMidday.org
