Gender Focus
Gender relations are being a theme worked by Rede Bartô and the community, as the role of women in Quilombo is very strong. As the story itself tells, they were the ones who woke up to the struggles for freedom, since the times of slavery. In today's society, they are still responsible for the preservation and transmission of culture through school and moral values. They are the maximum representation in the search for the rights of the Quilombo.
