On Monday April 29th, host John Quinlan interviewed Emma Sokoloff-Rubin, co-author of “Sustaining Activism: A Brazilian Women’s Movement and a Father-Daughter Collaboration.”
In 1986, a group of young Brazilian women started a movement to secure economic rights for rural women and transform women’s roles in their homes and communities. Together with activists across the country, they built a new democracy in the wake of a military dictatorship. In “Sustaining Activism,” Jeffrey W. Rubin and Emma Sokoloff-Rubin tell the behind-the-scenes story of this remarkable movement.
“This absorbing book—combining history, politics, sociology, memoir—is ultimately beyond category, much like the individual activists in Brazil whom it traces.” –Reviewer Mary Jo Salter
