The bird woman is born, grows and lives. She is full of fear, but sometimes she sings, while she spends her days in a cage. One day, the cat jumps on the cage and breaks it, that is when the bird woman leaves her prison and flies; although they want to catch her, she flies to free herself from it while everything else falls apart. This picture book is a powerful feminist metaphor for women's oppression and liberation; the universality of the illustrations, made by the Mexican artist David Álvarez, masterfully complement and interpret the text of the Argentine author Ethel Batista.
