The Mentor of the Brazilians was a periodic come back toward the feminine public of the Brazilian province of Minas Gerais, in the context of magnifying of the public space and expansion of the periodic press of ends of the First Reign and beginning of the regencial period (1829-1832). That periodic interacted with a feminine public of certain social importance and instruction, in the context of a liberal-moderate pedagogy, and, inside of these limits, propitiated emancipator arguments to it, an incipient approach of the public sphere and constructed an identity of the liberal woman.
