SILVA, Valdenice Portela; LIMA, Marcus Eugênio Oliveira  and  SILVA, Patrícia da. Social responsibility standard and the discrimination of black women in the industrial sector. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2019, vol.22, n.1, pp. 29-47. ISSN 1516-3717.

The aim of this study was to analyses comparatively the impact of social responsibility norm on black women discrimination in Sergipe's manufacturing industry, between 2007 and 2008 vs. 2013 and 2014. The data was collected from the Annual Report of Social Information (RAIS) of Ministry of Labor and Employment (MET). The results show a strong pattern of gender discrimination, indicating a male predominance in the Sergipe's manufacturing industry. The data also shows race discrimination, once the blacks were sub represented. Most important, was the intersection between gender and race, which demonstrates that black women had the lowest indexes of inclusion and salary in the industrial sector. This scenario of gender x race discrimination has changed little from 2007/08 to 2013/14, with the introduction of the social responsibility norm since the 1990s. The results were discussed in accordance to theories of sexism and racism.
