Como o MMTR representa as mulheres, ao mesmo tempo em que simpatiza com a rede institucional de enfrentamento de violencia (sem ser integrante formal), e a equipe de pesquisa tem uma historia de trabalho de colaboracao com o movimento tanto neste assunto, quanto em outros, houve uma sintonia de interesses que contribuiu para um ambiente de compartilhamento, descontracao e seriedade nas discussoes.
Durante os grupos de discussao, no mapeamento dos casos conhecidos de violencia contra as mulheres, os relatos citam, prioritariamente, agressoes com "retirada de sangue, apanhar constantemente do marido, ter relacoes sexuais sem consentimento da mulher, xingamentos, controle da vida da mulher" (Grupo de Discussao, 13[degrees] Encontro do MMTR/Sertao Central; 16[degrees] Encontro Municipal do MMTR de Sao Jose do Belmonte, 2009).
Essa rede e composta por diferentes atores que participam, em muitos momentos, de ambas as redes (sindicatos, MMTR, promotoria, agentes comunitarios de saUde, agentes de seguranca pUbiica).
A propria interiocucao aberta da equipe de pesquisa e o MMTR na discussao do assunto de enfrentamento de vioiencia constituem apenas uma das facetas que, repetidamente, se fez presente para exemplificar que esses movimentos tem papel importante na divulgacao da Lei Maria da Penha, e em capacitacoes de mulheres para conhecimento de seus direitos, incentivando o empoderamento feminino.
The MMTR saw SOS Corpo as an ally and source of feminist pedagogy and knowledge, in part gleaned from its transnational connections.
In the early 1990s, SOS Corpo asked the MMTR to participate in a research project on gender and reproductive rights.
In their translations, MMTR members did not convey a fixed "essence" of rural womanhood but, rather, shared their own constructions of gender relations in the sertao.
Through their participation in writing the article, members of the SOS Corpo staff then engaged in a second process of translation in which they linked the experiences of MMTR members to those of the domestic workers and urban housewives whom they had also studied.
MMTR leaders expressed satisfaction with this exchange, apparently accepting the retranslations of their lives that had been made.
A few years later, MMTR members discovered that SOS Corpo was holding a seminar on rural women for NGO representatives from around the region, at a cost of the equivalent of $200 a head--a substantial sum for an impoverished region.
The MMTR authors reminded SOS Corpo of their historically close relationship, demanded an apology, and insisted on a meeting to discuss the issues.
The struggle was intensified by the fact that the reciprocal translations between SOS Corpo and the MMTR were taking place in a larger context, in which market relations were increasingly threatening to restructure social movements and their alliances, as well as the lives of their members.
