From the Paper:

"Feminism has played a large role in helping to secure a number of women's rights in South America. Women's movements have been active in Brazil in the past decades. The movements grew in the 1980s as Conselho Nacional de Direitos da Mulher--CNDM, a council on women's rights, was created. The early Brazilian feminist movement had links to the resistance to the military regime, and connections to human rights organizations. As the movements grew, violence against women (in the forms of sexual harassment, sexual abuse, and domestic violence) became an important focus of feminist groups."
