Founded by Dominican writer Jael Uribe in 2009, Mujeres Poetas Internacional seeks to enhance the work of women poets and reclaim their place in literature. Throughout Women’s History Month, Uribe’s movement connects poets, artists, and literary groups in more than 30 countries through Grito de Mujer Festival Internacional de Poesía. Translated as Woman Scream, the festival sends out a roar against violence while using words as a medium for therapy. One of 90-plus worldwide events associated with the third-annual gathering, Thursday’s panel discussion and poetry reading at UNAM features contributions from Alfredo Ávalos, Erika Said, and Leticia Sandoval (México), Ophir Alviárez (Venezuela), Santiago Daydi-Tolson (Chile), and León Leiva Gallardo (Honduras) and is dedicated to 15-year-old Nobel Peace Prize nominee Malala Yousafzai (above). Free, 6:30pm Thursday, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México - San Antonio, 600 HemisFair Park, (210) 222-8626, unamsanantonio.org.
