COSTANZI, Chiara Gomes; CARRIERI, Alexandre de Pádua; OLIVEIRA, Thaís Zimovski de  and  CORREIA, Gabriel Farias Alves. "For the freedom I have": work and daily life of female popcorn makers. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.4, pp. 1758-1765. ISSN 1984-6657.

This work sought to understand how gender identities are (re)produced in the daily lives of female popcorn makers in Belo Horizonte through the conversations that surround the popcorn making. For this purpose, a discourse analysis of twenty-eight semi-structured interviews with female popcorn makers was carried out, in addition to participant observation and a field diary. In line with the theories discussed, it was noted that the gender division of labor makes them suffer twice the consequences of the precarious and informal work scenario. By way of conclusion, strategies of liberation and resistance characterized by singular tactics in the daily life of making popcorn were observed and analyzed.

Keywords : gender; informal work; popcorn makers.
