Yuderkys Espinosa Miñoso is a theoretician, activist, essayist and teacher from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, living currently in Bogotá, Columbia. Her thought and writing engages with and confronts radically current socio-cultural expressions of racism, (hetero) patriarchy and coloniality in Abya Yala, Latin America. She is co-founder of the Grupo Latinoamericano de Estudios y Acción en Sexualidades, Género y Cultura (GLEFAS) and co-editor of the volume "Tejiendo de otro modo: Feminismo, epistemología y apuestas decoloniales en Abya Yala". As a student of María Lugones, one of the most prominent voices of a decolonial feminism, she ended up becoming one of its main references in Latin America.
