We want to celebrate this important day by doing what we love: teaching Spanish 🙂
That’s why, we have created a list with Spanish feminist terms and words related to International Women’s Day.
By clicking each word, you can read its Spanish definition, its English translation, and examples of how to use it.
If you think we forgot any important word for this day, please leave us a comment so we can add it to the list.
And by the way! Our school was founded and it is run by women. Also, since we opened the school, most of our students have been women. If you want to know a bit more about our team, you can read this 🙂
