The counseling service of the feminist organization Mujeres Creando in La Paz in Bolivia not only offers advice and help, but also a place to celebrate your divorce.
I always thought it made more sense to celebrate freedom instead of its loss.
But in South America, this thought is still rather revolutionary. Too many people here regard unmarried women (and, to a lesser extent, men) as sad losers who deserve pity. Too many parents push their children into unhappy marriages far too early, resulting in violence, alcoholism and femicide.
