The death of Gabriela Leite, on October 10, meant a great loss for the struggle for the rights of prostitutes, and sexual rights brodaly speaking, in Brazil. Throughout her life Gabriela embodied the struggle for freedom, non discrimination and the right to pleasure and happinness.
As a tribute to Gabriela, SPW gathered articles and notes that have been issued by civil society organizations, social movements, government institutions as well as press articles after her death. We clustered this material in three categories: articles and the analytical notes that devote attention to the role of Gabriela on the political scene; notes of sorrow and sympathy issued in Brazil and worldwide; and, finally, press repercussion.
