Marielle Franco, 38, a black politician from Rio de Janeiro, died fighting
for the rights of women and favela dwellers. As a councilwoman from the
Maré favela, she denounced the police brutality that favela residents, most
of them black, regularly experienced.

On Wednesday around 9:20 p.m., armed men gunned the councilwoman down in
her car in the center of Rio de Janeiro with nine shots—four to the head.
Her driver, Anderson Pedro Gomes, also died. She had just left an event
that she organized about black women’s empowerment.
