On July 10, Brazilian feminist Danda Prado received a tribute in Rio de Janeiro. At the age of 80, she shared her stories, opinions and experiences about feminism in Brazil and around the world with an audience made up of feminists and young women. The participants also recounted their encounters with Danda and how important she was in spreading the feminist movement in the country.
Doctor, writer and heiress to the Brasiliense publishing house created by her father Caio Prado Jr, Danda is due to have her biography released in the second half of this year. Her career includes meetings with Simone de Beauvoir and Sartre, whom she had the opportunity to receive in São Paulo, the publication of the historic book "Ser Esposa - A Mais Antiga Profissão" (Being a Wife - The Oldest Profession), in which she discusses classic feminist issues, and the volume "O que é o aborto?" (What is abortion?).
