Organisation: APEM/MSF Portuguese Women’s Studies Association/Women without borders

Country: Portugal

My favorite feminist is: Clara Sottomayor

What makes me angry about patriarchy:
Its ability to reconfigure itself over and over.

My areas of expertise when it comes to VAWG:
Sexual violence (sex crimes and justice)

Key issues when it comes to VAWG in your country/organization that the other EWL Observatory experts need to know.
Femicide rates, sexual violence, domestic violence, judicial tolerance towards VAWG, neo sexism.

Explain briefly your daily work as if you were to explain it to a 12 years old:
I study courts and the way justice can be either an instrument of empowerment to women or a source of oppression that legitimizes violence and inequality towards women and girls.

If you could change one thing for women, what would that be:
I would make women to be perceived as human beings.
