Young feminists of Rio de Janeiro: life stories, agendas and intergenerational relationships

Throughout its history feminism was supported by many young generations, but only very recently young women began to claim knowledge, and opened discussions in specific areas within the youth movement, as black and lesbian feminists have done in previous decades. Starting from the life stories of four young feminists in the Rio de Janeiro Metropolitan Area, this paper aims to contribute to the understanding of how young people have approached, inserted, and seen them selves within the movement.
