SOIHET, Rachel. From Communism to Feminism: Zuleika Alambert's trajectory. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2013, n.40, pp.169-195. ISSN 0104-8333.

The article discusses Zuleika Alambert's trajectory, the first woman to take part of the Communist Party's Central Committee in Brazil. It analyses how she became aware of her gender conscience which led her to emphasize feminine issue's particularities, disagreeing with traditional theses of the party referred that subordinated that issue to the private property abolition and to class relations' changes. Therefore, it aims to show how Zuleika step by step enhances her criticism of that party's positions, overcoming her reticence until her confessed adhesion to the feminist proposals.

Keywords : Communist Party; Feminism; Zuleika Alambert; Circle of Brazilian Women in Paris; Gender Conscience.
