Roma women are leading many processes of change within their families and communities by using education to challenge gender relations and overcome inequality. The action that grassroots Roma women are taking in their communities by establishing alliances with other women and other actors is framed within a dialogic perspective (Aiello et al., 2019). Roma women are considered the main protagonists of the changes that are taking place among the Roma people, specially through enhancing access to higher education.
