"Violence against women has many faces, many forms and many effects. This tribute brings together the women I have portrayed here who, each with a different story, have in common the fight against violence against women. May this fight one day come to an end. On that day, we will all be bigger and better as individuals and as a society." by visual artist Gladson Targa

    The Councillors of the Federal Council, on behalf of the Brazilian Lawyers Association, come with this note to deeply regret the death of the social activist Sabrina Bittencourt, who dedicated her life to the fight for Human Rights and in particular to combating all forms of violence against women.

    Despite her short life, Sabrina left a legacy with her story: a woman who transformed the pain of the rapes she suffered in her childhood into the strength needed to help other victims.

    Sabrina dedicated her life to humanitarian causes, and worked in the search for missing children in Brazil, in support of blind and deaf children in African countries, and in defense of indigenous people.

    She was one of the founders of the COAME movement - (Fighting Abuse in the Spiritual Context), which aims to focus on the denunciation of sexual violations committed by priests, pastors, gurus and spiritual leaders in general.

    Unanimously elected in 2007 to a position on the board of Partners of the Americas, one of the world's leading volunteer organizations, she was one of the pioneers of social entrepreneurship that seeks to enable the social sector to be self-sustaining.

    In a country where human rights are violated in the light of day and an average of 164 violations are officially recorded every day, it is necessary to celebrate the life and mourn the death of women like Sabrina. May we, like her, transform the pain, now of her so early departure, into strength to continue her struggles, necessary for us to dream of a more just and egalitarian society.
