Impact throughout the community.The Campaign has taken a very solid hold in Brazil and can be seen in various sectors of the population. It is also gaining recognition from the government as an initiative that defends and promotes women's and girls' human rights.
At this stage of consolidation, the organizations involved have a good idea of the efforts that should be further developed at local, intermediate and national levels in order to achieve a greater impact of action with diverse and committed allies.
The National Coordination in Brazil is made up of the Rede Feminista de Saude, Direitos Sexuais e Direitos Reprodutivos (Feminist Network for Health, Sexual Rights and Reproductive Rights Reproductive rights or procreative liberty is what supporters view as human rights in areas of sexual reproduction.

In Campo da Tuca
Reflecting on the implementation and development of the pilot project in the region of Campo da Tuca, in the municipality of Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, we can see evidence of the achievement of positive indicators with regard to local promotion of the Campaign. The establishment of a local committee with the participation of 80 institutions--community organizations and movements, NGOs, municipal government agencies, professional associations and individuals who are prepared to participate--reveals the significant degree of acceptance for the proposal.
Testimonials from participants in the campaign on improvements in self-esteem, conflict resolution among adolescents and greater demand for services for women in the community are small but significant signs of change. Communication materials disseminated by the local committee ensure the local presence of the Campaign, as well as participation in various activities. The specific process of identifying community agents of change began in the second half of 2010, with the incorporation of people willing to work together and to allow activists to enter their homes to discuss the issue of violence against women. Placing the sticker "Violence against women is not allowed in this house" on the front door denoted the acceptance of the Campaign proposal by the community.
The Violence Continues
Despite these initiatives, the phenomenon of violence and victimization victimization Social medicine The abuse of the disenfranchised–eg, those underage, elderly, ♀, mentally retarded, illegal aliens, or other, by coercing them into illegal activities–eg, drug trade, pornography, prostitution. of women in Brazil continues to show high rates, although more attention is being paid to this phenomenon. The Rede Feminista de Saude believes that no effort is enough when it comes
to facing a crime of such enormous dimensions, with deep roots in Brazilian society and culture that shapes the relationships between women and men.
The incidence and prevalence of such violence in the country reveals high rates of human rights violations of women of all ages, races and ethnicities, sexualities and social classes. Turning a blind eye to this reality only allows the continuation and perpetuation of a culture based on the use of force and power against women.
