Join us for this event with speakers, Rosani Fernandes 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. This (second) part of the panel will focus on educational colonial policies and practices that reproduce the coloniality of gender and the denial of rights of indigenous women and their communities in the North of Brazil. Strategies of resistance developed by Black and indigenous women will also be addressed.

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.
