To coincide with the University of Oxford’s Brazil Week, this event looks at the violence and exclusion from the public sphere faced by Brazilian women. Dr Anna Petherick, Departmental Lecturer in Public Policy – whose research focuses on corruption, gender and trust, with much of it based in Brazil – will discuss these issues with current MPP students Amanda Sadalla, Carolina Martinelli and Pollyiana Lima.

The event will include a round of short introductions on each participant's research, followed by an open space for questions and reflections from the audience on the possible ways to overcome these challenges.
