    3. Step Up Migrant Women

    3. Step Up Migrant Women

    Gil migrated to the UK from Brazil with her partner and two children as a tourist, and subsequently became undocumented. When she fled abuse, she was not supported by the police and she ended up homeless with a child in mid-winter. Finding the Latin American Women’s Rights Service (LAWRS) changed her life and Gil now works on the group's Step Up Migrant Women campaign to highlight the vulnerability of migrant women with insecure immigration status who are suffering domestic abuse. 

    LAWRS also works with Migrants in Action (MinA), a community theatre group dedicated to Brazilian women in London who have experienced gender violence. Using theatre techniques, they create a safe space for women to share stories, identify violence and heal. We hear from the artistic director, Carolina Cal.

    Women Resisting Violence is presented by Renata Peppl and produced by Louise Morris. Made through a partnership with King's College London and the Latin America Bureau. 

    Featuring music by Rebeca Lane, WARA and Uppbeat*. With excerpts from ‘We Still Fight in the Dark’/ 'Lutamos no escuro’, developed by Migrants in Action (MinA)
    featuring "Alguém me avisou" by Dona Ivone Lara.

    This episode is also available in Spanish and Portuguese.

    In order to influence policy around gendered violence and highlight the lessons and voices of those working on the frontline, we’d be grateful if you could add a review and share the podcast widely.

    3. Mujeres Migrantes: Levántense

    Gil emigró al Reino Unido desde Brasil con su pareja y sus dos hijos. Entró al país como turista y posteriormente se convirtió en indocumentada. Cuando el abuso aumentó, Gil huyó de su casa pero no recibió ayuda de la policía británica. Acabó en la calle con sus hijos en el invierno. Su vida cambió al encontrarse con el Servicio para los Derechos de las Mujeres Latinoamericanas (Latin American Women’s Rights Service - LAWRS), y ahora Gil trabaja en la Campaña Step Up Migrant Women, perteneciente a la organización, para visibilizar la vulnerabilidad de las mujeres migrantes con estatus incierto en situaciones de abuso doméstico. 

    LAWRS también trabaja con Migrants in Action (MinA), un teatro comunitario dedicado a las mujeres brasileñas que han sufrido violencia de género. A través de técnicas teatrales, ellas crean un espacio seguro para compartir sus experiencias, identificar la violencia y sanar.

    Women Resisting Violence es presentado por Renata Peppl y producido por Louise Morris. Producido tras una colaboración entre el King's College London y el Latin America Bureau.
    Con la música de Rebeca Lane, WARA y Uppbeat*, y extractos de ’Lutamos no escuro’ (‘Todavía luchamos en en oscuro’) realizado por Migrants in Action (MinA) con el tema "Alguém me avisou" de Dona Ivone Lara.

    Este episodio también está disponible en inglés y en portugués.

    2. Rio's Trailblazing Women's House

    2. Rio's Trailblazing Women's House

    Located in one of the largest favela complexes in Brazil, Rio’s Casa Das Mulheres is a haven for those leaving abusive relationships, in an area where police refuse to intervene. It’s also been a lifeline for the community during Covid, when many favela residents lost their jobs - as they've provided work and distributed food to starving families as well as dealing with a huge rise in domestic violence.

    We hear from the founder of the Women’s House, Eliana Sousa Silva, and her colleagues from the NGO Networks of Maré, about the struggles the women of Maré face and how they’ve adapted to help each other and transform their neighbourhood in the face of government neglect.

    Huge thanks to Eliana Sousa Silva, Julia Leal and Michele Gandra for sharing their stories with us.

    Head to wrv.org.uk for more about the project and redesdamare.org.br to learn more about the Women’s House.

    Louise Morris was the producer and writer, Renata Peppl the presenter.
    Juliana Postico, Claudia Alves and Najlla Kay were the dubbing artists and Ella Barnes and Theodora Bradford our translators.

    Featuring music by Rebeca Lane, Jonathan Panta, Rafael Rocha, Serena Assumpção and Gilberto Martins.

    2. A Pioneira Casa das Mulheres no Rio

    2. A Pioneira Casa das Mulheres no Rio

    Localizada em um dos maiores complexos de favelas do Brasil, a Casa das Mulheres no Rio de Janeiro, oferece refúgio para aquelas que deixam relacionamentos abusivos em uma área onde a polícia se recusa a intervir. 

    A organização tem sido um santuário durante a pandemia, durante a qual muitos moradores de favelas perderam seus empregos. Além de lidar com um significativo aumento na violência doméstica, a Redes da Maré fornece trabalho e distribui alimentos para famílias que estão passando fome.

    Ouvimos da fundadora da Casa das Mulheres, Eliana Sousa Silva, e de suas colegas da ONG Redes da Maré sobre as lutas e dificuldades que enfrentam as mulheres da Maré e como se adaptaram para se ajudarem e transformar sua vizinhança.

    Louise Morris foi a produtora e roteirista e Renata Peppl a apresentadora.
    Juliana Postico, Claudia Alves e Najlla Kay foram as dubladoras e Ella Barnes e Theodora Bradford nossas tradutoras. Você ouviu músicas de Rebeca Lane, Jonathan Panta, Rafael Rocha, Serena Assumpção e Gilberto Martins.

    1. Mourning the 56 in Guatemala

    1. Mourning the 56 in Guatemala

    On 8 March 2017, 56 girls were locked in a classroom at their state-run children’s home just outside of Guatemala City, when a fire broke out. Only 15 girls survived the blaze. Four years later, no one has been sentenced for these crimes.

    We speak to members of Ocho Tijax, a women’s group caring for the girls’ families and the survivors and fighting their case in the courts. We hear about the stigma they continue to face, through attacks and the destruction of their memorial, but also about their powerful campaign #NosDuelen56 (We Mourn the 56): a global cry for justice through art.

    Vianney, the mother of Ashly Angelie Rodriguez Hernandez, who lost her life in the fire, tells us about her ongoing battle for accountability for her daughter's death.

    TW: This episode contains references to death and abuse and one instance of strong language.

    Women Resisting Violence is presented by Renata Peppl and produced by Louise Morris.
    Made through a partnership with King's College London and the Latin America Bureau.
    Featuring music by Rebeca Lane.
    Dubbed by Cecilia Cruz, Alma Carballo, Esmeralda Lobos and Larisa Muñoz

    This episode is also available in Spanish, and a Portuguese transcription can be found on our website.
