The research project presented here comes from experiences and observations of everyday life for people who attend yard of Candomblé in the city of Assis / SP, which in interfaces with psychology leads us to ask questions about subjective processes of women inserted in this context. Its proposal to map the relations of power exercised by women in situations of Candomblé practices in order to attend to the ways of being and being in that clipping of life. In this perspective, we give priority the concept of sexuality device presented by Michel Foucault (1988), in interfaces with social markers of stigmas such as social class, race / color, gender relations and generational as well as that found literature on research Candomblé investigate situations, among them, the studies developed by Pierre Verger (1881; 1995; 2000).
