When I was 7, I went to live and work in a farm owner’s house. I suffered a lot of domestic violence. I was raped. And I even told his wife, but she threatened me. When I was 8, we went to the Círio de Nazaré religious festival, and she bought a doll for her daughter. I loved it! I asked her if she would buy one for me as well. “I won’t, because you already have someone to play with. You’re not playing with dolls anymore.” Only after I grew up did I understand why she had said that.
