Page Readers talks with Aggie Villanueva
I don't know where to begin! Aggie is such an incredibly strong woman, as well as a vivid story teller using both words and photography to tell her stories. Learn about Aggie www.aggiev.org - or at least start there!
"Rightfully Mine" is the story of Rizpah, a strong unmarried woman living in a time when women didn't have the same rights as men. When her father dies before Rizpah is married, the inheritance that had been promised to her father is taken from her and her sisters because they are not men. Rizpah takes her argument to the highest leader - Moses and God himself - to plead her case. Consider her the founder of the Womens Rights Movement!
