CADA AÑO VIVIDO Y CADA ARRUGA CUENTAN MI HISTORIA.

Isabel Allende bucea en su memoria y nos ofrece un emocionante libro sobre su relaci n con el feminismo y el hecho de ser mujer, al tiempo que reivindica que la vida adulta hay que vivirla, sentirla y gozarla con plena intensidad.

En Mujeres del alma m a la gran autora chilena nos invita a acompa arla en este viaje personal y emocional donde repasa su vinculaci n con el feminismo desde la infancia hasta hoy. Recuerda a algunas mujeres imprescindibles en su vida, como sus a oradas Panchita, Paula o la agente Carmen Balcells; a escritoras relevantes como Virginia Woolf o Margaret Atwood; a j venes artistas que aglutinan la rebeld a de su generaci n o, entre otras muchas, a esas mujeres an nimas que han sufrido la violencia y que llenas de dignidad y coraje se levantan y avanzan... Ellas son las que tanto le inspiran y tanto le han acompa ado a lo largo de su vida: sus mujeres del alma. Finalmente, re- flexiona tambi n sobre el movimiento #MeToo --que apoya y celebra--, sobre las recientes revueltas sociales en su pa's de origen y, c mo no, sobre la nueva situaci n que globalmente estamos viviendo con la pandemia. Todo ello sin perder esa inconfundible pasi n por la vida y por insistir en que, m's all ́ de la edad, siempre hay tiempo para el amor.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A passionate and inspiring meditation on what it means to be a woman, from one of the leading voices in Latin American literature, Isabel Allende.

English edition: THE SOUL OF A WOMAN, by Isabel Allende Ballantine Books, 3/2/2021]

When I say that I was feminist in kindergarten, I am not exaggerating, begins Isabel Allende. As a child, she watched her mother, abandoned by her husband, provide for her three small children without resources or voice. Isabel became a fierce and defiant little girl, determined to fight for the life her mother couldn't have. As a young woman coming of age in the late 1960's, she rode the first wave of feminism. Among a tribe of like-minded female journalists, she for the first time felt comfortable in her own skin, as they wrote with a knife between their teeth about women's issues. She has seen what has been accomplished by the feminist movement in the course of her lifetime. And over the course of three passionate marriages, she has learned how to grow as a woman while having a partner, when to step away, and the rewards of embracing one's sexuality.

So, what do women want? To be safe, to be valued, to live in peace, to have their own resources, to be connected, to have control over their bodies and lives, and above all, to be loved. On all these fronts, there is much work to be done, and this book, Allende hopes, will light the torch of our daughters and granddaughters with mine. They will have to live for us, as we lived for our mothers, and carry on with the work still left to be finished.
