Pereira Colombia women and their personality

Chances are you have heard Pereira Colombia women are beautiful, charming, and outgoing. Some historians say their characteristic attractive look stems from their genetic background (Redacción El Tiempo, 2002).

Truth be told, there is much more than their appearance. Historically, they have stood out among women in Colombia for their free, reactionary, and fighting spirit (Vega, n.d.).

For example, one of the city’s co-founders was an Afro Colombian, independent, self-relying single mother: Guadalupe Zapata (Consejo Laboral Afrocolombiano, 2020). Similarly, the first woman to ever become a professional dentist in the country was from Pereira: Edilma Escobar (Vega, n.d.).

Where does their nature come from? At the beginning of the 20th century, Pereira was establishing itself as a liberal, trade-oriented town (Redacción El Tiempo, 2002). As a result, women took on a distinct role than normally expected over the years. They collected coffee by hand on farms, regularly worked in factories, and actively promoted communal life in the city (Vega, n.d.).
