Español

Red Latinoamericana de Mujeres Defensoras de Derechos Sociales y Ambientales is an influential network of grassroots organizations spanning 11 Latin American countries. Together, their members document the daily and devastating harm of the mining industry on women’s lives, taking these struggles out of the shadows and making them visible across the region. They work at the intersection of women’s rights, Indigenous rights, and environmental justice, challenging the systems that colonize peoples and nature while plundering mineral resources for the sole benefit of mining companies. Across their work, Red seeks to shift harmful policies and practices that directly affect women, pointing the way toward solutions that advance both gender and environmental justice simultaneously. They do this by pursuing several interconnected strategies, including political advocacy, communication, alliances, training, and knowledge exchange.
