Sisi Cáceres Rojo is a feminist activist and was president of Extremadura Entiende. She has a degree in teaching and has worked as a project technician in various NGOs.
Cáceres was born in Trujillo. She had difficulty coming out of the closet, and was unable to do so until she was a 41-year-old. She became with her partner in 1993 and the two women had a son together in 2007 who was conceived using artificial insemination. She separated from her partner in 2009. Cáceres became involved with Extremadura Entiende after that, and it allowed her to better understand feminism and feminist activism. Part of the reason she remained in the closet for so long was because her partner did not want to be visibly out. On 24 October 2015, she was first elected the president of Extremadura Entiende for a two-year term. She remained in the role until 2019, when she then became the organization’s technical coordinator. In 2017, she was the co-presenter of the central act of Orgullo Madrid that took place in Plaza de Colon. That year, she was also unemployed for a while.
