Brazil: Popular Feminism and Its Roots and Alliances
Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
This chapter traces the origins of contemporary forms of popular feminisms in Brazil, in feminist and popular movements and trade unions. It then focuses on two particularly successful experiences of self-identified feminism among the working class/working poor: the network of Promotoras Legais Populares (women legal advisors), and the Brazilian chapter of the World March of Women.
