Inaugurated in October 2016, the Women's House of Maré is a space designed by Redes to foster the role of women in the region, contributing to the improvement of their living conditions. It is our purpose to recognize the historical role of women in the development of social movements and struggles related to infrastructure in Maré, since the 1980s.


The activities offered at the House fits into different work fronts: professional qualification, combat violence against women, social and legal assistance and territorial articulation for the creation of a positive agenda for women.

 The House has also served as an exchange place for local, public and private institutions, building new partnerships and articulations for womens rights. There are also surveys that aim to put the daily life of women in Maré into data. Thus, in the medium and long term, we can adjust and enhance the specific policies for them in this territory.
