Abstract:

Porto Alegre, the capital of Brazil's southernmost state of Rio Grande do Sul, was once an ordinary, dirty, Brazilian port city. Through a direct democracy program known as the "participatory budget," transformation has taken place, including a fallen unemployment rate, an excellent public transportation system, and the dramatic improvement of poor neighborhoods. This program traces the experiences of two women, both born in poor slum areas, who have risen through this program as neighborhood leaders.
