"We learned that women and men can have equal rights. We are Indians and we do whatever we want." The statement is part of the Indigenous Women Against Prejudice campaign, an initiative by the indigenous girls of the Pankararu Ezequiel Indigenous State School, located in the Brejo dos Padres village, in the municipality of Tacaratu, in Pernambuco. 

The campaign is the result of a Social Media Mobilization workshop that is one of the activities of LabElas: digital media and free software at the Pankararu Ezequiel Indigenous State School, a project of the Pankararu Warrior Indigenous Women's Association supported by ELAS in the Exact Sciences.
 
"We spent two weeks reflecting on indigenous women's place of speech: who has been speaking for them anyway? And when we realized that the content circulating around doesn't correspond to the reality of Pankararu women (and each people has its own specificities) we started to produce our own content that comes precisely to break down all the gender and racial stereotypes that are placed on indigenous women," explains Fernanda Martins, one of the project's coordinators. 
 
LabElas: digital media and free software at the Pankararu Ezequiel Indigenous State School promotes training in web radio, content production, ethno-journalism, the use of social networks, free software, digital photography and video production with young indigenous people from Tacaratu, Pernambuco. It is one of the 10 projects currently supported by the 2nd ELAS in Exact Sciences Call for Proposals, a partnership between the ELAS Fund, Instituto Unibanco, the Carlos Chagas Foundation and UN Women, which aims to bring girls closer to the exact sciences and technologies.
