Abstract

PRA, Jussara Reis  and  EPPING, Léa. Citizenship and feminism in recognition of the women's human rights. Rev. Estud. Fem. [online]. 2012, vol.20, n.1, pp. 33-51. ISSN 0104-026X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-026X2012000100003.

This article examines actions of citizenship and protection of the women's human rights. It addresses the articulation of global women's movement and feminists and their impact in the international agreements and in the national government agendas in the last three decades. The analysis seeks the connection between feminist studies, gender and social capital to reflect on the patterns of political insertion of women in the world and in Brazil, to assess the meanings of this participation and its impact on the legal and cultural changes oriented to gender equity and to the women's citizenship expansion.

Keywords : Citizenship; Human Rights; Feminism; Gender and Social Capital.
