She is one of the 1000 women proposed for the Nobel Peace Price 2005.
She says: “Very soon, I understood that I could not be happy being far away from the people who were suffering. For me, the most important thing is being near the humblest people in my country”.
Beatriz Benzano Seré – Uruguay
She works for ‘Dawn of New Paris Group–Women for a Dignified Life’.
As a Dominican nun, Beatriz Benzano knew the suffering of the marginalized populations of Montevideo, Buenos Aires and Santiago. She left her order and joined the legendary Tupamaros movement, until she was captured, tortured and confined to prison for four years. She returned to Uruguay, from her exile in France, to organize the group Dawn of New Paris–Women for a Dignified Life, helping people living on the streets and families whose lives had been destroyed by unemployment. She particularly dedicated her work to the aid and defense of abandoned women.(Read all on 1000peacewomen).
