The Woman Scream International Poetry and Arts Festival (Grito de Mujer®) is a worldwide chain of events celebrated in March, where institutions, poets and artists of different countries volunteer to honor women, sending messages of self-esteem, respect and rising voices against women violence. It includes events for the public such as: Conferences, art exhibits, poetry recitals, concerts, fairs, theater presentations, films, etc.
Woman Scream Festival (Grito de Mujer) has been celebrated in over 70 countries since 2011, with over 800 successful events coordinated by volunteers. Woman Scream started at the Dominican Republic by the dominican poetess Jael Uribe, and spread throughout the world thanks to the work of men and women who have joined the coordinating team on their cities.
Woman Scream is celebrated throughout the month of March (from 1st to 31st only) . It has open call for events coordinators (from Oct. to Feb.), and launches its first list of confirmed participating countries around November 25th to commemorate the International Day of Non-Violence Against Women. The list of participant countries is constantly updated until February each year.
