LEITE, Marcia de Paula and SOUZA, Silvana Maria de. Gender and race equality in Brazil: a discussion of public employment policy. Dados [online]. 2010, vol.53, n.1, pp.195-232. ISSN 0011-5258. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0011-52582010000100007.
The article analyzes public policies for promoting equal employment opportunities in terms of race and gender in Brazil, with a double focus. First, seeking to reclaim the historical perspective in the policies' implementation, considering the difficulties they have encountered; second, through reflections on the policies' limits and potentialities. Since such policies have only been implemented recently in Brazil, the article focuses especially on how Federal government planning for 2004-2007 and 2008-2011 has dealt with gender and race inequalities.
