Abstract:I examine the relations between the many activisms of women and the interrelations of oppressions as females, poor and blacks. I suggest that the activism of poor black women who live in the shantytowns of Salvador has specific features: motherly activism, apolitical, feminist, antiracist, among others. It takes place in a free space or neighborhood association where women feel liberated, empowered and undergo a life changing experience in terms of personal growth.
