Coletivo Mulher Vida

Brazil

Español

Over thirty years ago, a collaborative process with women sugar cane cutters revealed that their low rates of participation in union assemblies were due to the widespread presence of gender violence and femicide. The Coletivo Mulher Vida was born from this process, which, along with a broader analysis of the impacts of violence on women’s lives, led the activists involved to expand their work across the surrounding region. Over the years, the organization has continued to gain strength and visibility through political advocacy, training, movement-building, and the provision of direct services. Across this work, they advance their mission to confront and combat all forms of gender-based violence by building power with an intergenerational movement of activists, including socially excluded children, adolescents, youth, and adult women.
