Update Brazil
Women's Police Stations
Brazil, 1986, 15 minutes, Color, VHS, Voiceover
Order No. W99264
Brazil, like most countries, has a high incidence of domestic violence and sexual assault. Too often, institutions set up to deal with these crimes are staffed by men who have little understanding or recognition of the needs of the women who are most often the victims. UPDATE BRAZIL looks at this country’s innovative solution: the establishment of police stations completely run and operated by plainclothes and armed women, offering legal assistance and emotional support. An informative, exciting, and empowering new perspective in dealing with sexual assault.


    "Highly recommended... inspiring to watch."
    Barbara Schulman
    Women's Studies, MIT

    "Particularly valuable information on what women in a Third World country are doing to end violence against women."
    National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
