The decolonization wave that emerged after World War II became a challenge to the Portuguese political regime because it still insisted to defend a multi continental policy. The building of a new colonial speech, namely by feminine organizations of the Estado Novo, had an important role in justifying that premise. Until 1974, the feminine colonial speech presented an evolution through which it tried to adapt to circumstances that the political regime was unable to avoid. Still, the changes done are but mere artifices with the goal of changing all that is unnecessary so that the essential may remain.
