GONCALVES, Erli Helena  e  GENTIL, Adriano Bastos. What shout is this? Sounds of women – an argument for recognition. Rev. Bioét. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.3, pp.542-551. ISSN 1983-8042.

This article intends to address the weaknesses surrounding the existence of women for the simple fact that biologically they are female. The arguments used for exploring this theme are anchored in Amartya Sen’s dialogues with other thinkers from different fields. It is worth noting that this essay uses distinct scenarios as its basis, from social movements, to situations exploited by the media, among others. It is also suggested that this field of discussion of gender relations is carried by positions of power, tensions, confrontations, accommodations and evictions that need to be problematized in relation to women, whether in contexts of education, health, social inclusion, work and housing.

Palavras-chave : Women; Gender identity; Social movements.
