Unreasonable Kids College and Volunteers in Colombia Foundation honoring International Women's Day
This interview, titled #BreaktheBias, is a discussion between Gonzalez Duarte and Unreasonable Kids College founder Ateba Whitaker. The two women will share project initiatives and ideas for empowering young women across the globe, specifically Gonzalez Duarte's "Box2Grow" boxing program for young women.
"There is no equality between men and women here. There is a macho culture. Sexual violence is common," says Gonzalez Duarte about the culture in Colombia. "I want to give women the tools to stand up for themselves. I want to plant that seed in their heads."
