YO SOY FRIDA
43 YEARS OLD
20 years in Mexico this year. Mother of two boys. Actress.
Frida was an avant guarde woman, a symbol of the political and feminist struggle. She was imprisoned in her own boby, with which she had a love/hate relationship, trapped in a corset, which symbolized the machista Mexican society. She transmitted that constant struggle through her apintings, to free herself from that suffering.
Today, women are still fighting for their place in society, for the right to decide about their loves and their body, for their freedom.
As Frida probably did, I feel like everyday I must enter into a battle with myself and my surroundings to allow my essence, the REAL me,
to manifests itself beyond the role that society has imposed on me and the prejudices it carries with it.
