Social Activist. Otilia Lux de Cotí⁠

✺ Social Activist. Otilia Lux de Cotí⁠. Advisor to MADRE and part of UN Women’s Civil Society Advisory Group in Latin America and the Caribbean, Guatemala⁠

❛ Socialization of the CSW agreed conclusions is very important. This is how women activists in their respective areas of specialties learn about the commitments that Member States have pledged to achieve. ⁠

It allows them to hold governments accountable, and ask for those commitments to be transformed into social policies. We have to drive this change in order to really make a difference for rural women and girls.❜⁠

Who is this remarkable woman ?

Otilia Lux de Cotí is a Guatemalan social leader and politician.

She was later chosen to serve as Minister of Culture and Sport in the cabinet of President Alfonso Portillo. She was a member of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues at the United Nations, and she served on UNESCO's Executive Board for the 2004–2007 period.
