These verses celebrate the indomitable spirit of indigenous peoples, whose existence is inseparable from the natural world.
The AWÊ, orchestrated by the maracá was a daily reminder of the rightful owner of the space that I sought to enter. Little by little, intersections and communalities among us became apparent.
As an active participant in this historic event, I was deeply touched by the immense articulation and potential for transformation through collective action, especially within the context of Indigenous women's pursuit of their rightful place in society.
My transformative journey as Tamikuã Pataxó, an empowered Indigenous woman who crossed oceans to a destination that had previously existed only in my dreams: Sweden
The world is in constant transformation, human beings, nature, earth are all in constant change, so how to write about the experience lived in field research in such a way that the "vivacity" is maintained during the writing of the text?
Black women (Dandaras) and the struggle for an anti-racist education: Reflections on the impact of the “Enegrecendo a Academia” Project
The Dandaras Collective put into practice the dream of making the monitoring project available and aiming to organize the activities held a call for new participants. This text aims at presenting an experience report on the systematization of data from the Project Blackening the Academy and present the next steps of a collective that keeps moving to build an anti-racist education. With a qualitative approach and using the methodology of bibliographic and documental research, this work presents a brief theoretical discussion on epistemic racism and the need for plurality within the academic field and presents the data of the activities carried out between 2020 and 2022.
Being and becoming a woman in this country is not a simple task, and belonging to the dwarf race in women's rights makes us highly vulnerable. An academic title and a legitimation as a trans researcher from the perspective of human rights do not exempt me from still being violated in my basic inalienable rights.
As a research and studies center, BRaS aims at promoting and supporting collaborative works. In the week we celebrate international women's day, we have invited three researchers to join us for the Special Edition (SE) No. 6: Women of Brazils. In the next five weeks, we will present some of the different women who are part of the Brazilian reality: migrant, trans, black, indigenous, and high school students. Today the researcher Claudia presents a text about Brazilian migrant women. We hope you all enjoy the reading!
The Charter of the United Nations, drafted in 1945, represents the foundational document of the United Nations (UN) and reaffirms the commitment to defend human rights, including the establishment of gender equality as a fundamental right. However, the promotion of women's rights required an extensive period and various strategies of political engagement with governments and international organizations in different spaces of discussion in the local and global political arena. In this process, gender issues were progressively incorporated into the global human rights agenda, following a specific visibility regime, according to the context and force configurations among the different political actors, with emphasis on the role of women themselves.
