Mapping Latin American women defenders

It shows cases across Latin America where women are affected by extractive activities, and the roles they are playing in confronting them and building alternatives. Click on the blue map pins to find out about the specific cases and gets links to more information.
“Women are taking action to strengthen their role as leaders and to confront the discrimination implied in the social dynamics of concepts such as progress and development. Moreover, women are organizing and participating actively in the construction of alternatives focused on protecting the commons.”
The EJAtlas is a project of the ACKnowl-EJ project.
