Jeffrey W. Rubin and Emma Sokoloff-Rubin at Berkeley, March 2013.

In 1986, a group of young Brazilian women started a movement to secure economic rights for rural women and to transform women’s roles in their homes and communities. Together with activists across the country, they built a new democracy in the wake of a military dictatorship. Jeffrey W. Rubin and Emma Sokoloff-Rubin, a father-daughter team, describe the challenges of ethnographic research and the way their collaboration gave them a unique window into a fiery struggle for equality.

Jeffrey W. Rubin is an associate professor of History and a research associate at the Institute on Culture, Religion, and World Affairs at Boston University.

Emma Sokoloff-Rubin is a reporter for Gotham Schools and has written extensively on Latin America for a variety of publications.
