Inauguration of the Temporary Exhibition – Women and Resistance – New Portuguese Letters and other struggles

6 of May of 2021 - 12h00
Aljube Museum Resistance and Freedom

A book by 3 women, decided in May 1971 and published a year later, with the first edition collected and destroyed by censorship three days after its release.
In the 50 years of the writing of the New Portuguese Letters that gave rise to the process known as the Three Marys we revisited the actuality of the struggle of women for their rights.

From 6 of May until December 2021, with this exhibition, we explore a vast parallel programming that aims to link multiple perspectives on the struggle for equality and freedom, what has already been done and the much that remains to be done. Conversation sessions, cinedebates, theater, music, itineraries, visits and more.

Book presentation “Don’t be fooled!”
A tribute to the generation of fathers and mothers born in the 1930s who, without seeking a place in history, political or any other kind of protagonism, never resigned, risked their lives, went to prison, went into exile, and were persecuted so that we can live today in a better country.
