Running against the flow in Peru
Peruvian journalist Graciela Tiburcio Loayza, aged 23, on her journey towards becoming a women’s rights activist. You could say my activism started when I was a child. Despite my insecurities, I pointed out injustices whenever I saw them. This often got me into trouble. In high school, when I refused to follow the other girls, I was bullied. Sometimes I felt really alone. A few years ago, my family’s economic situation changed and I had to move to one of the poorest districts of Lima.
