ADAO, Áurea  e  REMEDIOS, Maria José. The educational narrativity in the first period of Oliveira Salazar’s government. Women’s voices in the National Assembly (1935-1945) . Rev. Lusófona de Educação [online]. 2005, n.5, pp.85-109. ISSN 1645-7250.

With Oliveira Salazar’s accession to the government, following the military coup of 1926 which put an end to the period of democratic republican life established in 1910, a process leading to the establishment of an authoritarian regime took shape. The Portuguese Constitution approved in 1933 defines the new regime which came to be known as Estado Novo [New State] ideologically sustained by an anti-liberal concept of Catholic outlook and which will strongly keep Portugal away from the deep changes with which European societies were faced. Nonetheless, it is this political regime that will grant Portuguese women not only the right to vote, never obtained during the 1st Republic, despite feminist claims, but it will also ensure them a seat in the Assembleia Nacional [National Assembly]. Oliveira Salazar’s educational policies between 1935 and 1947 (first phase of the regime) runs alongside the formation and consolidation of a nationalist school, whose purpose is to prepare the new men and the new women who will serve a Portuguese society supported on three pillars - God, Nation and Family. This paper aims at divulging the work developed within the scope of the project Mulheres, educação, poder(es) [Women, education, power(s)] whose main objective is to work upon primary sources as a contribution towards writing the History of Women’s Education in contemporary Portugal. Bearing in mind the interventions of female MPs throughout three legislatures (1935-1945), we propose to draw a framework of feminine participation in the political sphere by examining their speeches with regard to gender categories.
