Taming or Unleashing the Monster of Coalition Work: Professionalization and the Consolidation of Popular Feminism in Brazil
Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
This article traces the history of cross-class alliances among Brazilian feminists over the last several decades. It hopes to offer insights into how we may "tame" the challenges of constructing coalitions across differences in a changing political environment by examining two cases: Brazil's National Feminist Network for Health, Sexual, and Reproductive Rights, and Brazil's chapter of the World March of Women.
