Meeting with Lusophone community - Djamila Ribeiro and Joanna Burigo talked about Feminism in Brazil.
Joanna Burigo, a feminist experiment in communication and gender education, mentioned that the demonstration of dissatisfaction which took Brazil in June/2013 unfortunately still not expressed in a Brazil of 2017. But in July/2015, as the reflex of the protests of 2013, women came out to articulate the gender inequality in a way that inserted the subject in the public debate. From 193 countries classified by descending order of the percentage of women in national parliaments, Brazil is number 155. This position shows the importance of education and activism in gender equality. Joanna is involved with educational projects of NGOs to empower women in a situation of vulnerability.
The attendees were very engaged, and dialogue took place tracing a parallel between Norwegian and Brazilian realities and achievements. More than 30 Portuguese speakers attended the event on October 12th at the Brazilian Embassy in Oslo. The primary goal of the evening was to strengthen the network of professionals who speak Portuguese in Norway.
Since 2014, BNCC holds the Annual Brazilian Professionals meeting, and since last year, the event extended the invitation to all Portuguese speakers, native and learners, including people from Brazil, Portugal, Moçambique, Angola, and Norwegians who speak the language.
