    Some time ago Laura and my pupils told me to write something in this blog, so today I have opened it for writing (I do not what about) but I have been surprising with the fantastic talk of Allende. It is worderful. I completely agree with her, I would like to live in a better world, with more heart. I have just finish “Diario azul de Carlota” and also Gemma Lienas talks it is necessary feminist men for a better world. I would like to recommend you this book, you know the authoress is coming to our school next week.

    This speech is really apassionate.
    It makes feel proud of women and that makes me each day more I want to become a woman who in the futur could change some wrong things.
    I think that I will look for some books of her and read them.

      I’m so glad you liked her speech. I can recommend some of her books. The House of the Spirits, for example, or Eva Luna’s Tales. I think you can find them in our library at school!

    Simply awesome… i’m without words!
    After hear the histories I want to make something to change the terrible situation that a lot of women in underdeveloped countries suffers each day!
    I totally agree her, is not fair that men gain more money than women making the same job or women can be dismiss in their jobs because they are pregnant.
    How we can change all this injustice?
