English to Portuguese: Women Don’t Need Self-Defense: Men Need to Stop Assaulting Women General field: Social Sciences Detailed field: Journalism
Source text - English The problem with assaults on women isn’t that lots of women don’t know martial arts or other self-defense tactics, but that lots of men think it’s acceptable to assault women. And that comes from deeply engrained social attitudes that need to be addressed before we can move forward as a society, because otherwise, we’re going to keep coming back to the same busted building blocks. Telling women to learn self-defense creates a feedback loop — because women need self-defense to protect themselves from men, who thus escape responsibility for the fact that they’re assaulting women, and keep doing it because no efforts are made to change the way they view, talk about, and interact with women, which means women need to learn self-defense to protect themselves from assault.

Translation - Portuguese O problema com abusos contra mulheres não é que muitas mulheres não sabem artes marciais ou outras táticas de defesa pessoal, mas que muitos homens pensam que é aceitável abusar de mulheres. E isso vem de posições sociais profundamente enraizadas que necessitam ser abordadas antes que nós possamos nos mover para a frente como uma sociedade, porque de outra maneira, nós estaremos voltando aos mesmos problemas de fundação. Dizer às mulheres para aprender defesa pessoal cria um ciclo vicioso - porque as mulheres necessitam de defesa pessoal para se proteger dos homens, que escapam assim da responsabilidade pelo fato de que estão abusando de mulheres, e continuam a fazer isso porque nenhum esforço é feito para mudar a maneira que eles veem, falam sobre, e interagem com mulheres, o que significa que as mulheres precisam aprender defesa pessoal para se proteger de abusos.

I'm new to the translation business, but I'm also a Language (and literature) student for 5 years now in the University of São Paulo, the biggest and most important university from my country, Brazil. I studied English for 7, 8 years in a language school called Wizard. Every day I have contact with the language, especially the writing form. I also understand, through my studies, the need for a translation to be carefully well done, paying attention to the language cultural and social backgrounds, besides the historical formation of their words. I'd also like to do pro-bono work so to acquire experience for better and cleaner translations.
