The feminist militant highlighted her project “Ovarios Calvarios” where she sings to the victims of sexual violence in Colombia and recalled “when I was at university I read Simone de Beauvoir, she said that high heels, long nails, a tight corset, the only thing they did was that we could not perform as much as men; When I was little, I always felt more like a boy than a girl, I liked to get muddy and not sit still with some dolls”. “I have always felt that I want to put on other clothes, being“ Business ”, she has had to defend that space. My colleagues and singers may be fat and ugly but women deal with much more pressure, very superficial and stupid. We are deep and diverse, there are many types and they cannot make us one-dimensional”. she mused herself. Antidive
