This week, we discuss a story we've been wanting to bring you since the the start of ¿Pero Por Qué?, about the history of Argentina and the impressive achievements of the women's movement there over the past five years. We also chat to Argentine-Canadian journalist Natalie Alcoba who is on the ground in Buenos Aires.
