In Latin America, the Covid-19 pandemic aggravates a context marked by marked socioeconomic and gender inequalities. If seen from a communication perspective, the context may be characterized by the existence of a culture unfavorable to the affirmation of sexual and reproductive rights, in addition to, above all, difficulties in meeting the right to information on public policies for women, obstacles that have been faced by social activism. Given the novelty of this scenario, the scientific evidence that helps its understanding remains waiting for appropriate research designs. This project is set in this direction by proposing the search for knowledge in the area of co-communication around relevant research issues. The general objective is to map and characterize the flows and counterflows of information and communication put into action by social movements and activisms in defense of sexual and reproductive rights, in search of understanding the potential contribution of public information sources and symbolic frameworks that circulate in Latin American societies, particularly Brazil and Argentina, for the affirmation of rights, in the post-Pandemic context and the consequences of Covid-19 for the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Agenda 2030.
