MIGUEL, Luis Felipe  e  FEITOSA, Fernanda. Gender and congressional discourse: women and men in the Brazilian house of representatives. Dados [online]. 2009, vol.52, n.1, pp.201-221. ISSN 0011-5258.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0011-52582009000100006.

Data from a sample of nearly 12 thousand speeches on the floor of the Brazilian House of Representatives from 1999 to 2006 show that Brazilian Congresswomen expound on different issues as compared to their male counterparts. Does this reflect a different perspective by women, as some contend, or does the insulation of Congresswomen within these issues represent the reinforcement of a stereotype that impedes their access to central positions in the political field? In the latter case, the difference is due not to a distinct female sensitivity, but to the limited opportunities open to women in the political field. In other words, the themes that are most permeable to women's presence are associated with the least prestigious positions. This establishes a political division of labor, relegating Congresswomen to the positions least amenable to the accumulation of political capital.

Palavras-chave : gender; political field; Congressional behavior.
