This work seeks to map and problematize the production of Developmental Psychology, considering the contributions of feminist studies in this field. This is part of a research design that draws on the systematic review of literature to raise and analyze feminist influences in the Brazilian production of Developmental Psychology. To do so, they will be collected in online digital databases (Scielo, Capes, Google Schoolar, Psycinfo) and analyzed the articles of Brazilian periodicals, dissertations and theses in the area of psychology and especially in the area of Developmental Psychology from of the cross-referencing of descriptors such as psychology, developmental psychology, gender and sexuality, still being able to use other terms referring to age markers (child, adolescent, youth, childhood). In the analysis we will identify the themes, objectives, methods, results, gender concepts used. We will seek to identify, as gender and gender are endorsed and conceptualized by authors, their relations with the processes of change, their incorporation or not of feminist authorship. In the analysis of the collected material, we will establish dialogues with the production of the theme in Psychology and in the ideas formulated by feminist authors, in their possibilities of alliances in the production of other ways of knowing/doing research in psychology, assuming political and ethical perspectives that approach demands matched by age markers.
