International Women’s Day, paisa style

March 20, 2009

International Women’s Day was March 8th. It’s a big deal in big cities and small towns all over Latin America. I was in Remedios municipality in Antioquia. Here’s a version of a flyer (the date is a typo) I saw in every town in the region that week, inviting people from each smaller vereda in that part of the municipality to a party in San Francisco.

Surprise prizes for the women and soccer for the men!

Here’s video from the women’s day march on the other side of Antioquia, in Medellin.
