Compilation of dialogues between women from various Guatemalan native peoples. Exposes here the strength of indigenous women who have suffered physical and emotional violence who speak of repression and genocide. Stories that allow us to process the ancestral pains of the Ixiles of the Mayan peoples of Guatemala. It refers us to whitewashed feminism and the difficulties it represents to listen to these women because of their vision drawn by the culture, which does not listen to their demands and does not know their history of struggle and the validity of their ideas. It evidences the importance of getting off the place of power conferred by the university, the institutionalized power and the political norms of the nation in order to establish a genuine dialogue.
