BACCARINI, Mariana Pimenta Oliveira; MINILLO, Xaman Korai  e  ALVES, Elia Elisa Cia. Gender Issues in the Ivory Tower of Brazilian IR. Contexto int. [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.2, pp.365-396.  Epub 29-Jul-2019. ISSN 1982-0240.

What is the status of women in the discipline of International Relations (IR) in Brazil? This study provides a pioneering map of gender issues in Brazilian IR, focusing on inequality, discrimination and harassment. It includes a literature review as well as the findings of two sets of research: the first a survey of personal and professional issues faced by academic staff in Brazilian IR, and the second a report on the staffing of IR and related departments at private and public academic institutions in Brazil. Our research shows that despite the specificities of the Brazilian higher education system, Brazilian IR academics conform to international trends in respect of gender issues, facing monetary and/or familial inequalities and gender discrimination in their careers. It also shows that 25% of female academics have experienced undesired sexual contact at least once, and that there is a gap between male and female understandings of what constitutes sexual harassment.

Palavras-chave : gender inequality; gender discrimination; sexual harassment; Brazilian International Relations; academia; MulheRIs; empirical analysis; gender studies.
