Country/Region Profile

  • Country / Region profile of: Brazil

    The Brazilian Constitution guarantees women the same rights as men, yet women lag behind men in both political and economic status throughout the country. Brazil has not been involved in any armed conflicts recently, though there were protests in response to the mistreatment of poor residents and labourers leading up to the World Cup. Women in Brazil, though equal under the law, face discrimination based on lingering traditions. Brazil ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1984. Brazil is currently ranked at number 62 of the 136 countries listed on the Global Gender Gap Index (GGI). Local organizations, including the National Council on Women’s Rights, and women across the country are working to guarantee the security and protection of Brazilian women.

    “Reality has changed, and we changed with it. However, I never changed sides. I have always been on the side of justice, democracy and social equality.” - Dilma Rousseff, President of Brazil
