Women who faced machismo in the Judiciary – 08/03/2023 – Frederico Vasconcelos

In November 2020, we asked a group of readers to nominate female judges, lawyers, prosecutors, prosecutors and public defenders who played an important role in confronting sexism in the Judiciary.

The result was the formation of a list of 50 names, which illustrated the post in honor of “Women who faced machismo“.

They held command posts or suffered and witnessed gender discrimination.

The selection includes authors of works on violence against women and young professionals who can report on what is changing in these institutions.

Machismo is defined as behavior that tends to deny women the extent of prerogatives or rights of men. It is a phenomenon that affects women in any activity. It is more serious in the Judiciary due to the power conferred on its members.

On International Women’s Day, the Blog reproduces the list of honored women
