ola2013marbrazilwomen poster01In 1986, a group of young Brazilian women started a movement to secure economic rights for rural women and transform women’s roles in their homes and communities. Together with activists across the country, they built a new democracy in the wake of a military dictatorship. 

Authors Jeffrey Rubin and Emma Sokoloff-Rubin discussed their recently published book, in which they told the behind-the-scenes story of this remarkable movement. As a father-daughter team, they described the challenges of ethnographic research and the way their collaboration gave them a unique window into a fiery struggle for equality.
