This work is reconstruct the trajectory of two feminist groups, the Brazilian Women Circle in Paris (1976-1979) and the Latin-American Women Group in Paris (1972-1976), from their writing production and their militant’s memory. We tried to analyze their way of functioning, the politic and ideological profile of their militants, their conception of feminism and the main themes debated within them. This work intends to reconstruct the subjective dimension of that historical moment, from the viewpoint of women who lived it, considering their militants' perceptions about their quotidian in exile, their relationship with men, inside the politic organizations and in everyday and their involvement with the groups in question.
