GOES, Lidiane  and  CORDEIRO, Rosineide. The fisherwoman in the artisanal fishing dayly routine. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.3, pp. 778-796. ISSN 1677-1168.

The objective of this article is to discuss the female work in artisanal fishing and the professional classifications attributed to the women in two fishing communities in the state of Alagoas. The study methodology included thirteen interviews focusing women and men, observations at professional representative institutions and the analysis of fishers’ registration forms. Results show that women take part throughout the entire productive chain of the sector. Regarding the classification as a fisherwoman, it is possible to say that it is now used as an ample concept, including all women working in the fishing activity and then linked to the fish-catching activity, a task usually associated to the male figure. One concludes that an educational work and mobilization in the professional entities could help in the recognition of women as professionals in this sector.

Keywords : Fisherwoman; Female work; Artisanal fishing; Sexuality.
