Noiva do Cordeiro is a small town in Brazil inhabited exclusively by women aged 20 to 35.
For a long time, men were not allowed to enter the settlement.
Later, the rules changed, and currently, as an exception, men can visit the area only on Saturdays and Sundays.
Residents say that together they plan and distribute responsibilities, there is no competition, and everyone lives in complete harmony.
Women are responsible for everything, from farming to urban planning. They believe that without men, they can organize a much better life.
Some of them are married. Husbands and sons live and work in neighboring settlements outside the city.
The history of the founding of Noiva do Cordeiro dates back to 1891. According to legend, a woman named Maria Senorinha de Lima left her husband, which is why she was rejected and expelled by her native village's inhabitants. Maria Senorinha de Lima started a new life by creating a special place for women.
