A bit of our History

Woman Scream
(Grito de Mujer) was born as a festival in 2011 but,
was created in 2010, by the poetess and designer, Jael Uribe at the Dominican Republic. The project was trusted to the Mujeres Poetas Internacional MPI, Inc, (Women Poets International Movement)
foundation, as an  international promoting and supporting platform for talented female poets, while integrating their art to create awareness against women violence. Throughout the years, Woman Scream extended its vision integrating all genders and artists, as part of our mission. Grito de Mujer is also a brand that embraces different projects, promotional items and ideas to benefit women causes created by Jael, that involve women's self-esteem campaigns as well. 

Woman Scream represents a socially viable and direct way of using poetry and arts in order to bring encouragement, injecting doses of self-respect to women all ages and reaching out families education through arts. Woman Scream is considered a platform for women's participation but, we allow men as well. We believe we are all part of this social mission to stop women violence together.

Woman Scream allows MPI’s followers and collaborators, specially women, to become volunteers event's coordinators, as a way to encourage leadership. That way, WS festival becomes a large human chain of people helping people deliver a change, touching one conscience at a time.
