MARTINS CAVALCANTI, Maria Clara. Decision, rupture, option: an experience of the Museum’s social role in favor of gender equity. Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.2, pp.133-140. ISSN 1852-060X.

This article is the collection of theoretical reflections that resulted from the Project “10 Meninas na Construção dos Amanhãs”, a partnership of the Population Fund of the United Nations with the Museum of Tomorrow, located in the city of Rio de Janeiro - Brazil. The Project consisted of educational actions carried out with 10-year-old girls living in different places of the city to discuss fundamentally their conditions. Therefore, during the meetings, actions were proposed that aimed to discuss the stereotypes related to the image of women, the wage differences between genders and present the trajectory of important women in history. In this Project we also held the Seminar “10 - Meninas na Construção dos Amanhãs”, which was attended by experts and representatives of the Population Fund of the United Nations. If the Museum presents itself as a body politic in favour of equity, the events that took place here sought to move comfort zones. In this sense, these events were constituted as actions that intend to advance in the direction of a more just society for believing in gender equity and social inclusion as premises and ideological construct.
