She is one of the 1000 women proposed for the Nobel Peace Price 2005.
She says: “I could not understand how I, a woman who was illiterate and poor, could contribute to change our lives. I did not understand that the strength of 1000 women was necessary to achieve what we wanted”.
Gladira Auxiliadora Talavera García – Nicaragua
She works for Axunica, and for The We Bet on Life Foundation.
She took care of her eight siblings and was not able to go to school. She was mistreated by her mother and also by the man she loved. She is Nicaraguan. Her legal name is: Gladira Auxiliadora Talavera García (52). People simply call her “Chilo.” Women recognize in her a common past of poverty and–more than that–a present of organization of acts against disrespect and marginalization. “Chilo” listens, reflects, finds solutions, smiles and never backs down. Never. (Read all on 1000peacewomen).
