In this panel we discuss how ribeirinhos, a population that has lived for generations on the banks of Xingu River, after being forcibly displaced, organized themselves in a peer council and achieved, with the Brazilian government, the recognition of their right to return to their traditional territory as a legal condition for the operation of Belo Monte hydroelectric plant.

We also propose a reflection on the role of women in civil society organizations and how their engagement had repercussions in gender relations in private and public environment.
