María Jesús Alvarado Rivera

by Kaia Devine - 8th - from Glenwood Springs Colorado

Mi heroína es María Jesús Alvarado Rivera. Su cumpleaños es 27 de mayo de 1878, y se murió es 6 de mayo de 1971. Su pueblo es Chincha Alta, Perú. María fué una feminista y educadora. En 1912, ella publicó un ensayo “El Feminismo''. En 1914 ella creó “Evolución Femenina”, un club para mujeres que quieren hacer un cambio. En el club las mujeres hablaron sobre lo injusta que era la vida para las mujeres y cómo podían hacer un cambio. María es mi heroína porque ella defendía los derechos de las mujeres. Ella juega un papel importante en mi vida. Porque, sin ella, les hubiera tomado mucho más tiempo a las niñas poder ir a la escuela y obtener trabajos igualitarios.

My heroine is María Jesús Alvarado Rivera. Her birthday is May 27, 1878, and she died on May 6, 1971. Her town is Chincha Alta, Peru. Maria was a feminist and educator. In 1912, she published an essay "The Feminism''. In 1914 she created "Feminine Evolution", a club for women who want to make a change. At the club the women talked about how unfair life was for women and how they could make a change. María is my heroine because she defended the rights of women. She plays an important role in my life. Because, without this, it would have taken much longer for girls to go to school and get equal jobs.
