Women are applauded


Yesterday was International Women’s day and Edith Castro was awarded the ‘Orden al Mérito de la Mujer Peruana 2006’- Order to Merit the Peruvian Woman of 2006.
Edith Castro is both a fire woman and a nurse and for the past 11 years she has been saving lives as a fire woman and a nurse. However, her most difficult challenge was entering an association where only 20% of the body are women, “chauvinism only exists when a woman permits it. I have never felt it” she assures. Along with Edith 9 other women received awards for outstanding trajectories.
