OLIVEIRA, Antonimária Bandeira de Freitas  e  LEITE, Jáder Ferreira. Production of meanings about political militancy of women linked to the MST. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.1, pp. 181-190. ISSN 2359-0769.

The present study aimed to investigate, through the theoretical contribution of Social Constructionism, the production of meanings about the political militancy of women linked to the Movement of Landless Rural Workers (MST) in Rio Grande do Norte. Six women who occupied the functions of state coordination in the regions of the movement participated in the study. We used the semi-structured interview as a data production instrument. The interviews were analyzed from an initial categorization of the material and the construction of maps of association of ideas. The senses surrounding political militancy - produced in associations through the expressions: contribution, hope, recognition, transformation, awareness and struggle - are linked to the collective investment of struggle, not only for access to land, but for the achievement of social rights. In order to carry out such a struggle, the process of political formation in the MST plays an important role, by producing repertoires articulated to a collective identity that, in turn, is experienced by women in the daily activities of militancy. The effects of militancy on the life of the study participants indicate that there is continuity and rupture in relation to the female role in the family sphere, either in the reproduction of a socially designated place of care for the home and family, or in the questioning of this place when experiencing degrees of participation in family decisions and fostering political participation, as they are inserted in instances of political and institutional representation.
