Join us for this panel with speakers Bruna Cristina Jaquetto Pereira, Aline Maia Nascimento, and Cecília Santos.

This panel will bring together three Brazilian feminist activist-scholars who will discuss, from an intersectional and decolonial perspective, historical and contemporary forms of violence facing Black and indigenous women in Brazil. The panel will be divided into two parts. In this (first) part, participants will focus on police violence against Black women in marginalized communities in Rio de Janeiro.

This event is a part of the 2021 Global Women's Rights Forum which joins the celebrations and legacies of resistance centered on March 8th, International Women’s Day.
