The annual Day of the Woman is March 3. In Picanya, a small town on the outskirts of Valencia, the Dones de Picanya (Valencino for The Women of Picanya) organize an annual street art event. My contribution is called Lidereses, Women Leaders, consists of five paintings of women engaged in leadership activities.
When I was young there was little information about potential careers. At that time, women became mothers, teachers or nurses. There were very few doctors, lawyers, scientists, etc. You have to talk to young people, especially girls, about the opportunities that can be their’s. You start with a dream. I want to be this or that. Then you learn about what it takes to become what you want to be.
