Commitment title:

Indigenous women fighting for our rights

Commitment description:

Indigenous women are diverse. Despite this diversity, we tend towards defending our territories, starting with our bodies. This defence involves the construction of autonomy in a bill and a life that must ensure a decent way of life, both personally and in the community. This is the only way the survival of all people can be guaranteed. As such, working with women, their knowledge and their strength is our commitment to building inclusion for the elimination of gender-based violence and racial discrimination.
