FERREIRA, Mary. Feminism in northeastern Brazil: Histories, memories and political practices. Polis [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.28, pp.145-160. ISSN 0718-6568.

Feminism in Brazil is reminiscent of the suffrage movement that hatch in the nineteenth century, had its first "victories" in the early twentieth century and substantial changes at the end of this century. Such changes, however, do not have a natural path, since social changes are the result of processes of struggle, reivindications, mediations and permanent actions. When thinking about the memories of feminism in Brazil one seeks to open eyes and minds in order to make it possible to show the long steps taken that enable to crate agendas considered advanced in the Brazilian context, or the slow steps in certain situations that resembled a retreat, or times when no steps were taken, and a stop took place, just meditating on coordinated actions in order to think, plan and transcend the common place in search for a time that will allow women to become a subject.

Palabras clave : feminism; Northeast; Brazil; memory; feminist action; public policies.
