Jardines de Pedregal's Breakfast for International Women's Day

Wednesday morning I attended a breakfast hosted by Rotary Club Jardines de Pedregal in honor of International Women's Day (March 8th) and to raise money for their community project in Cuauhtepec. 

The breakfast honored the following women: 

-Dr. Yoloxochitl Bustamente, General Director of the Instituto Politécnico Nacional (National Polytechnic Institute)
-Martha Chapa, artist 
-Gloria Guevara Manzo, Secretary of Tourism
-Silvia Pinal, currently General Secretary of the ANDA (National Association of Actors); famous for her acting career and "a legend from the Golden Age of Mexican cinema" (I was told she is the "Elizabeth Taylor of Mexico") 
-Beatriz Pagés Rebollar, General Director of the magazine Siempre
