ROSA, Waldemir. Sex and aolor skin: categories of social aontrol and reproduction of economic inequality in brazil. Rev. Estud. Fem. [online]. 2009, vol.17, n.3, pp. 889-899. ISSN 0104-026X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-026X2009000300017.
This article presents some reflections on the data contained in the Portrait of Inequalities of Gender and Race - 3rd Edition on socioeconomic inequalities and poverty. Following a line of argument that, as categories of social control, gender and ethnicity shape regulatory frameworks of social opportunities, we present some data on inequality between men and women and between blacks and whites that illustrate the inequities of power associated with them. It is emphasized that these categories are fundamental to understand the production and reproduction of inequities of power that permeate Brazilian society
