IBARRA, Ana Carolina Rodríguez; RAMOS, Natália Baptista  and  OLIVEIRA, Manoela Ziebell de. Challenges faced by women pursuing scientific carrer in Brasil: a systematic review. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2021, vol.22, n.1, pp. 17-28. ISSN 1984-7270.

This article presents a systematic review on the production about scientific career of Brazilian women, published between 2005 and 2019. The authors consulted the following databases: Portal of Scientific Journals from the Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES/Brazil), Scielo, Web of Science, and Scopus. The descriptors used were "Women in Science" AND Brazil * in Portuguese, English, and Spanish. Results show challenges faced by the researchers, such as difficulties in advancing their scientific careers, stereotypes about women in society, situations of verbal violence, harassment, work overload, difficulties in reconciling domestic and caregiver work with that of a scientist. The conclusion is that gender inequality still characterizes the context of science in Brazil.
