SCHUCK, Anderson Luis; GESSER, Marivete  and  BEIRAS, Adriano. Dialogues between gender and experiences with the street population. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.48, pp. 279-294. ISSN 2175-1390.

This article sought to understand the relation between the experiences of the street population - articulated with the Street Population National Movement in Santa Catarina (MNPR/SC) - and gender issues. To this end, we carried out a qualitative and cartography-based research, accompanying the Movement's meetings and actions. The critical analysis of these information was allied with feminist studies, with emphasis on Judith Butler's thoughts. The results indicate that gender discussions have become an element of problematization and setting political fight agendas, especially regarding the demands of homeless women. We analyzed that the gender dimension acts as a category implicated in the production of binary relations and corroborates to the maintenance of male privilege over women and the LGBT+ population. Furthermore, we consider that the gender normativity produces effects on the conditions of recognition, (in)visibility and apprehension of lives on the streets, intensifying their precarious condition.

Keywords : Street population; Gender; Cartography; Feminism; Precarity.
