Coletivo de Mulheres Regional Transamazônica e Xingu

This group of women from various cultural backgrounds in Altamira, Brazil, is building a women’s coalition to mobilise for direct action and policy advocacy to oppose the building of hydroelectric dams in the Xingu River (Amazon Basin). Despite the large social movement opposing the Belo Monte dam, this is the only group that is focusing on the impacts of such large-scale development projects on women in particular.
