Capazes (meaning the plural of capable in Portuguese) is a Portuguese feminist organization founded in 2014 by TV hosts Rita Ferro Rodrigues and Iva Domingues.

It started as a website, collecting articles by various columnists and interviews of Portuguese (mostly female) celebrities by the two TV presenters. The organization's original name was Maria Capaz (literally Mary Capable), the title of a song by rapper Capicua and a word play with the Portuguese term for tomboy, Maria-rapaz (Mary boy).[1][2][3][4]
