SARTORI, Elisiane. Child labour in Franca: a laboratory of the lute social in defensibility of the children and adolescents. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2006, n.26, pp. 253-278. ISSN 0104-8333. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-83332006000100011.
This paper proposes a reflection on the process of awareness gain and mobilization around the theme of child labor, the social struggles against the elimination of this practice, and the process of implementation of one of the most active programs in the area - the IPEC (International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour). Through a brief retrospective history of the inclusion of the theme of child labor on both the national and international agendas, this work describes the performance of the social actors participating in the process of discussion and preparation of projects and programs for eradicating child labor. It also discusses the consolidation of the social movements engaged in defending (the rights of) children and adolescents. The analysis of the representations of child labor inside the family and in the daily routine of both children and adolescents is permeated by the gender issue, which is verified in the words of children, adolescents, and their families.
