THE THIRD SECTOR AND THE PROMOTION OF WOMEN’S POLITICAL PARTICIPATION IN BRAZIL

The paper aims to analyse the Third Sector and its link with the promotion of women’s political participation in Brazil, by the case of “Institution politics by.from.for women”.Created in 2015 as a research project at an University, it has been transformed in a non-lucrative association in 2018.It’s an initiative of women who wish to broaden women’s political participation in all its plurality and diversity, in spaces previously occupied by men. Among the activities carried out by the Group are: Courses of Initiation to Political Training for Women (regular and summer school) and Research Meetings held with the theme of gender. The preliminary results are: (i)the candidacy of two students for positions of elicitation; (ii)one student assumed the women’s rights directorate in the Paraná state government; (iii)the network made by the students promotes a socialization and connection that helps propagate the idea of feminine empowerment;(iv) partnerships with other groups.
