Rromia (Roma women)

22’ | Spain, Italy | DVcam | 2006

Tatiana tells us her story about being the first and only woman who studied and earned a university degree, in her Roma community in the Gracia neighborhood.
To get there, she has challenged the mentality around her that questions the Gipsy identity of the ones who want to study, especially if the one is a woman.
HNowadays, Tatiana is well integrated in her community, she’s a social worker and she represents an example to positively transform society.
