In the last fifty years, the feminist movement in Latin America has led to a notorious cultural change in fields like work and education, in family structure, politics and also in the use of the media. The movements of Brazilian, Argentine and Chilean women, in particular, are now able to influence the implementation of policies to promote civil and social rights. This selection is the result of a research started in 2012, which counted with academics, undergraduate and graduate students, feminist activists and those who promote public policies for women, and aims to compare the processes of gender condition transformation in the three countries.
