Mujeres en Superación was born in 2000, with a vision of maintaining a context of solidarity and respect among sex workers women. In 2002, it consolidated as an organization with goals such as get rid of stigma and discrimination associated with sex work, fight against police and institutional violence and reduce HIV/AIDS and STIs among sex workers.
This is how, after a decade, sex workers in Guatemala are making their own history and leading political changes. They are currently participating in the Country Coordinating Mechanism (Mecanismo Coordinador de País – MCP) and working together with fellow organizations such as the Human Rights Defenders Networks, Network on Violence against Women, among others. Agencies and major donors –such as UNAIDS, UNFPA, USAID/PASCA– relied on us, as well as Universidad del Valle de Guatemala.
