Party of the Brazilian Women
Party of the Brazilian Women (Portuguese: Partido da Mulher Brasileira, PMB) is a political party in Brazil which uses the number 35. Known for its non-feminist and anti-abortion stance, the party is not represented in the National Congress.
The PMB was founded in 2015 by Sued Haidar, who doubled as the president of the party's National Committee. At its peak, the party was tenth largest party represented in congress, represented by 21 federal deputies in the Chamber of Deputies, only two of which are women, and one representative in the Federal Senate, Senator Hélio José. Most of the deputies have since left the party, and José switched his party affiliation to the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party in March 2016.
As of January 2017, the PMB has 38,438 members.
