JINZENJI, Mônica Yumi. Feminine reading and writing in the XIX century. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2012, n.38, pp.367-394. ISSN 1809-4449.

This paper aims to analyze women's reading and writing practices in the first half of the 19th century. In this period writing and reading abilities were restricted to a small part of the population, with few indicators of these practices regarding the feminine universe. We analyzed periodicals in circulation during the period, among them O Mentor das Brasileiras (São João del-Rei/MG, 1829-1832), in which there were texts by female writers and references to women's reading practices.

Keywords : Gender; Reading Practices; Periodicals; 19th century.
