May 8: Sustaining Activism: A Brazilian Women’s Movement and a Father-Daughter Collaboration

Join New York University's Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies for a discussion on Jeff Rubin and Ema Sokolof-Rubin new book, Sustaining Activism: A Brazilian Women’s Movement and a Father-Daughter Collaboration.

In 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. In Sustaining Activism, Jeffrey W. Rubin and Emma Sokoloff-Rubin tell the behind-the-scenes story of this remarkable movement. As a father-daughter team, they describe the challenges of ethnographic research and the way their collaboration gave them a unique window into a fiery struggle for equality.
