This description of Ana Veloso's work was prepared when Ana Veloso was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
Ana Veloso is helping women in Brazil to identify subtle forms of discrimination and empowers them to demand political change. As a black woman from the country’s Northeast, she aims to bring new faces and perspectives to Brazil’s feminist movement and to communicate the feminist agenda across a wider range of public life.
