She is the daughter of Pedro Rousseff, who worked as a lawyer, and Dima Jane da Silva, who worked as a school teacher. She attended a French and piano course, and had a classical education at the private school, Colégio Izabela Hendrix, but when her father died, she transferred to the public Central State High School. While still in high school, Dilma became an active member of politics as a socialist, and during her subsequent studies at college, she joined the organization of the Brazilian Socialist Party, called the Worker’s Politics and later joined another party, named the Command of National Liberation (COLINA).

While being a member of the COLINA, Dilma was forced to flee Belo Horizonte after conflicting with the military dictstorship, switching towns from Rio De Janeiro, Porto Alegre, and eventually Sao Paulo, where she was arrested in 1970, after government found out her whereabouts. While imprisoned, Dilma was tortured, and was even electrocuted multiple times.
