The International Day of Afro-Latin American and Afro-Caribbean Women was created on July 25, 1992, during the First Meeting of Afro-Latin American and Afro-Caribbean Women in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. It was decided that this day would mark the international struggle and resistance of black women. Since then, civil society has acted to consolidate and give visibility to this date, taking into account the condition of gender and racial/ethnic oppression in which these women live, which is explicit in many everyday situations. 

In Bahia, for example, there will be "July of the Black Girls", a joint intervention agenda of the black women movement, an initiative of Odara - Black Women's Institute and black women from the capital of Bahia and the Recôncavo, Feira de Santana and Baixo Sul regions.
