Bookmarks with women's words
In my bookmark series, I have focused my attention on highlighting the contribution of women. Therefore, you will see a greater number of bookmarks dedicated to female rather than male figures. My goal has been to recover the words of women who excelled in various spheres, not restricting myself only to women writers, in order to keep their voice alive.
