I'm working on a term paper on the traditional role of women in South America, making special emphasis on Brazilian culture. Where should I start? My Portugues is a bit rusty however I'm fluent in Spanish and English. Please help!
Thanks.

Start at Help Disco in Copacabana and end up at the Igreja da Gloria overlooking the Bahia Guanabara.

That's kind of an instant A-Z. Don't forget the Bahianas and the chambermaids, garconettes, office workers, devoted mothers, and athletes of the cities, the highrises, favelas, and countryside. The elite are hard to find so you must go to romantic night clubs in Ipanema and along the Lagoa.

Can't tell you about the other cities.

In a word, the Brasileiras are awesome...durable is another word that comes to mind.

Beauty was born in Brasil.

How about starting with the range of roles we 've played ? An overall view may be interesting. So may be talking to brazilian women. Would you like to get in touch with some fluent in English?

I am a social scientist, graduated at University of Sao Paulo and I would like to know: what exactly do you want? One thing is to search for textualizations of women in newspapers, or movie, literature, and other thing would be a more etnographical approach. If you need some assistance, just e-mail back.

My name is Suzanne, I live in San Francisco. I am writing a book on the Goddess Yemanja (the world could use more of her energy right now) focused on miracles of abundance, love, renewal, peace. Want to find upscale household in Bahia that could provide bed/board for 6 months in exchange for light duties, or equity participation in the book. The book is targeted to International pop culture market. Any suggested contacts would be greatly appreciated.

Pls email suggestions directly to sm2star@aol.com. Blessings and Thanks! Viva Beautiful Brazil! Suzanne
