On March 8th, Women’s Day, millions of us marched in the public sphere, demonstrating and resisting together. That day, we took a collective vow to dedicate our lives to putting an end to this violence.
The day before the protests, I panicked. My cries merged with the cries that emanate from the bodies of the countless women, non-binary, and trans people who have undergone systemic violence that goes unrecognized, unseen, and nonexistent.
Now, under lockdown, many are confined to the very spaces where the violence originates. Still, we took a vow. Today, I feel like I am part of something bigger than myself – something so big that it can make another thing fall.
I really think it’s gonna fall.
The patriarchy is gonna fall.

About Episode 4
In Se va a caer (It’s Gonna Fall), the fourth episode of StorefrontTV Season 3, Julieta Gil builds upon a series of works entitled Nuestra Victoria (Our Victory) about a prominent Mexico City monument called the Ángel de la Independencia (Angel of Independence). Last summer, hours after serving as the site of protests against violence toward women, the Ángel was boarded up. The government soon began working on its restoration, erasing the voices of protest that it carried. Se va a caer (It’s Gonna Fall), created in collaboration with Concepción Huerta, allows the words and actions of civil resistance to be maintained in our collective memory.
