Did you see today’s doodle yet? This September 21, Google decided to honor Jovita Idár, a Mexican-American journalist and activist who fought, among other things, for the right to education for women and women’s suffrage, as well as writing stories about the Mexican Revolution and the culture of this country in her father’s newspaper. country. Here we tell you more about its history.
Jovita was born Laredo, Texas, the border city with Mexico in 1985. She was the second of 8 children and her father was the owner of a local newspaper in Spanish called La Crónica, in addition, he was also a defender of the civil rights of Mexicans- Americans, who suffered discrimination by the state.
Steeped in her father’s activism, Jovita grew up determined to leave her two cents in social causes and decided to focus part of her efforts on the cause of her own gender and thus become a teacher, always following her ideals of her favorite phrase “Educate a woman and you will educate a family” and from the age of 18 she realized the inequality that women and low-income people faced when it came to education.
Later, she alternated her work as a teacher with that of a journalist in her father’s newspaper, also seeking to make a difference by sharing her ideas with a larger audience, and thus she gave herself to the profession of journalist, where she expressed her chronicles and opinions. on the events at the border and the Mexican Revolution.
His commitment to the fight for the rights of Mexicans on the border increased when he discovered the lynchings of which Mexican Americans were victims, at a time when outside the restaurants the entry of “blacks, dogs and Mexicans” was prohibited, for What, in 1911, together with his family organized the First Mexican Congress, to organize those who lived on both sides of the border to fight together against injustices.
In congress, she was named president of the Mexicanist Women’s League, a feminist association that was in charge of fighting against
educational, social and political problems and, as her first activist action within it, she offered education to low-income Mexican-American students, encouraging them to learn English as well.
Later, she began to turn her gaze to the importance of women’s suffrage and encouraged women to join the fight for it, signing almost all of her articles with pseudonyms.
In 1913, in the Battle of Nuevo Laredo of the Mexican Revolution, Jovita left to cross the border into Mexico, to collaborate as a volunteer with the White Cross, a medical care group similar to the Red Cross, as a nurse for the Army.
Later, and with the death of his father, Idár directed La Crónica for a brief period, and then worked for the newspaper El Progreso, causing a revolt at its facilities after the United States Army and the Texas Rangers failed. You might like an article protesting President Woodrow Wilson’s decision to send American troops to the border. He stood at the door of the newspaper and did not let them pass, (that is the image that the doodle refers to), alluding to freedom of the press, however, the next day they took over the facilities and set them on fire.
Upon getting married, he moved to San Antonio, where he edited the newspaper El Heraldo Cristiano, but his activist and altruistic actions never ended and throughout his life he devoted his efforts to educating those who needed it most.
The only way to prevent the spread of the coronavirus is to maintain preventive and mandatory isolation. That concept today reinforces the Internet giant with a doodle on its home page: “Stay home.”
The idea is to raise awareness about the importance of respect quarantine, something so simple but unfortunately many people do not comply.
By clicking on the doodle the search engine takes the results for the keyword “coronavirus”, with the first news, but also with a box with information and help and links to the Ministry of Health of Argentina and the World Health Organization.
They also offer a COVID-19 map, with statistics and cases for every million people, standing out above all cases in our country.
The Internet giant also promoted the use of the “SOS Alerts” service, which connects people’s searches in the news section with information from the WHO or, in Argentina, from the National Ministry of Health.
