ABSTRACT
A field still unstable in the Brazilian anthropological tradition, the absence of the adjective'feminist' is notable in face of the existence of many women anthropologists (and,increasingly, male anthropologists as well) who identify themselves as feminists. Add tothis the considerable field of production in expansion identified with Feminist Anthropology,giving continuity to a long trajectory of this critical thinking in dialogue with otherdisciplinary areas. Based on my professional experiences as an anthropologist acting asconsultant to governmental and non-governmental projects, as well as in doing researchand teaching in the area of gender, women, and feminist studies in Brazil, I propose, inthis communication, to reflect about the possibilities of stabilization of this disciplinaryfield in contemporary Brazil.
