  • Hollaback! Cuenca Critiqued This ArticleHollaback! Cuenca will be participating in a press conference regarding a controversial thesis from the University of Cuenca. The thesis contains false facts and assertions about the feminist movement, and appears to be largely opinion-based. It’s upsetting to see this insulting and hostile thesis supported by the University. The Hollaback! site endorsed a letter written by the University’s Women Association and attended a University Council session. Find out more on their blog (in Spanish). We’re so proud of them!
