About Danica Tanjutco

On October 2019, I am planning on travelling from Mexico to Peru. Latin America is one of those places where culture is so valued, and so is protecting women's honour and virtue. Sometimes this can cause sexism, without even being noticed. I am not saying that this is everywhere in Latin America, but we all know that this is happening. Did you know that in 2017, between January and September, there were 94 femicides in Peru? There were 5,707 sexual assaults and 21,000 assaults. Of the 5,707 sexual assaults, 71.33% of victims were children. If you are not familiar with the term 'femicide', according to the Dictionary, this is "the killing of a woman or girl, in particular by a man and on account of her gender."

I am embarking on my most daring adventure yet, and I want you to come with me. We want women to have their own voice, and we want to tell their stories to the world.

A pledge of $3 per month will unlock all the content on this page. If you can, and would want to give more support, that would be amazing but it is not compulsory. I love the thought of having a community to run to, to talk to, and to discuss these sensitive yet revolutionary topics with. I will still post regularly on my blog and on social media, but it would be nice to have a community that is not dependent on social media's algorithms. Plus, it would be great to have a somewhat stable source of income for my travels and to give back to the women I will encounter on the road.

This project would mean a lot to me, and hopefully, to the women that I will meet in the future. As Dilma Roussete said, "I hope the fathers and mothers of little girls will look at them and say, 'Yes, women can.'" This is a new chapter and a new beginning for Following Paraluman, and if you have enjoyed stories on my blog in the past, I hope you would consider contributing for the future, and I hope you consider becoming a patron.

Let us start a revolution!

When I reach an earning of $500 per month, I will post a short film documenting how I am training for this daring adventure and what I am doing in order to reach out to the women of Latin America.
