VR CUIR 2.0: M.s. Letícia Fernanda de Souza Rodrigues „Pindorama and Abya Yala: Gender and tradional communities“

The big mining companies have impacted ancestral lives in their territories. Resistance to mining projects has made social movements look for ways to fight this neoliberal onslaught. Black and indigenous women around Abaya Yala (Latin America) and the Caribbean have resisted this new era of capitalism. Women and children are the most impacted by developments in the invasion of these territories. The fight for land is, without a shadow of a doubt, the fight for Pachamama! Therefore, this lecture aims to listen to and exchange experiences of women, mothers, daughters, and granddaughters of the Abaya Yala.

Letícia Fernanda Rodrigues is a PhD in Sociology and a researcher associated to GEDMMA (Grupo de Estudos: desenvolvimento moderno e maio ambiente Clasco/ UFMA) and Luta (Laboratorio de Urgente de Teorias Armadas – Neab/ UFRGS). Her research interests include traditional communities, mining impact, quilombolas and Gender in indigenous communities.
