AZEVEDO, Nara  y  FERREIRA, Luiz Otávio. Modernization, public policies and gender system in Brazil: women education and professionalization between the 1920 and 1940 decades. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2006, n.27, pp.213-254. ISSN 0104-8333.

The social policies and, more specifically, the educational policies implemented in Brazil as of the 1920's in an isolated base, and effectively institutionalized during the Vargas era, encouraged a formal schooling process experimented by an important number of women, mostly by those from an urban middle class. These experiences were considerably responsible for relevant changes in the gender system, particularly in respect to women professional insertion in the academic and scientific world. This article aims to review a rather recognized interpretation in the specialized literature that tends to minimize the consequences produced by these reforms in the educational profile of the female population.

Palabras clave : Modernization; Public Policies; Gender System; Education; Women Professionalization.
