This exhibition explores the multilayered, formal and informal initiatives built by women to create community agency and map individual and collective routes for resistance against gendered urban violence. It draws on the recent body of collaborative research led by Professor Cathy McIlwaine (Department of Geography, King’s College London) with a number of international and local partners, gathering evidence around the pathways that women living in peripheral communities in Brazil, and Brazilian migrants in London develop - consciously and unconsciously -  to resist direct and indirect gender-based violence.

Exhibition runs from the 3rd to the 13th May at The Exchange, King's College London.
Exhibition concept and design: Paulica Santos and Renata Peppl
