ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.

Emilia Jomalinis

I'm a Brazilian activist working in ActionAid since 2008.

I daydream daily about environmental and social justice, especially in terms of equity for women and an economy where consumers know the social and environmental costs of what they buy.

At ActionAid Brazil, I've been working on the Women's Rights Program with women's economic and political empowerment, especially women farmers, and combating violence against women.
