The GUERREIRASPROJECT just wrapped up its 2014 Capacitação Summit in São Paulo! The Summit took place over the course of three days and entailed the Guerreiras gender justice training for 14 female futebol players from across Brazil. Players hailed from Rio de Janeiro, Foz de Iguaçu, Porto Alegre and São Paulo. Through voice-building and story-telling activities, combined with gender theory and practice, we explored how our experiences from the pitch as female players can be turned into powerful tools for social change. Each of these women became certified as Guerreiras Ambassadors, now positioned and prepared to deliver the Guerreiras Community Workshop in her region and serve as a local leader of gender justice through football.

O GUERREIRASPROJECT acabou de acabar o Congresso de Capacitação 2014 em São Paulo! O congresso aconteceu ao longo de três dias, e resultou na formação de 14 jogadoras de futebol de mulheres do Brasil todo em Embaixadoras Guerreiras de Justiça de Gênero. As jogadores vieram do Rio de Janeiro, Foz do Iguaçu, Porto Alegre e São Paulo. Através de atividades de formação de voz e construção de narrativas, combinado com teoria e práxis de gênero, exploramos como nossas experiências no campo, como jogadoras, podem ser transformadas em poderosas ferramentas para a mudança social. Cada uma dessas mulheres foi certificada como Embaixadora Guerreiras, e agora estamos todas posicionadas e preparadas para oferecer as Oficinas Comunitárias Guerreiras e servir como líderes locais de justiça de gênero por meio do futebol.

‘Somos todas guerreiras’ – The GUERREIRASPROJECT worked with the female players of Centro Olimpico in São Paulo, ACER Brasil, and Lente Viva Filmes to produce this video. It was made possible with support of the Womanity Foundation and IndieGoGo supporters. The film aims to raise awareness from a historical perspective of barriers that female futebol players have faced in Brazil  and to draw attention to the strength, courage and passion that these women possess. It was produced with the aim of also presenting powerful, uplifting and inspiring images of female players on the pitch to make these women visible and to serve as a strong counter to the mainstream representation of the female body surrounding the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

We are pleased to share the Portuguese version of the video here and will soon release the English version.
