This project seeks to research track, organize, analyze and evaluate public policies of the Ministry of Agrarian Development - MDA that are based on the territorial approach implemented in the Pontal do PAranapanema/ SP in its interface with the Pano II National Policy for Women (2008). In this context, this project fits into a larger body of research tradition in geography which seeks to understand the social processes from the relationship between territory, politics and gender. This relationship has been assumed as an important explanatory factor since the mid-1980s, when geographers and geographers have drawn attention to the need to incorporate the gender component Human Geography, looking for evidence that the social and territorial organization encompasses considerable differences between men and women. As a final product, search will produce a video documentary combining moments of the fieldwork and interviews with key subjects of female leadership in the areas of deployment of territorial public policies, contributing thus to the production of audio-visual materialsm, texts and papers, didactic-pedagogic and iconographic collection on this topic.
