Integrated under the Research Project entitled Female Work (1850-1926): Azorean Histories (Ref. M1.1.C/C.S./022/2019/01), financed by the PRO-SCIENTIA programme, of the Regional Government of the Azores, this scientific event, of a multidisciplinary nature, has as a main objective the debate and analysis of the role of women in the professional world, in an urban context, from the 19th century to the mid-twentieth century. Highlighting figures, identifying female professions and economic and social contributions, as well as their echoes in culture and mentalities, is the central focus of this associated Gender Studies, aiming also to rise awareness of gender inequality and opportunities, across different geographies and eras.
