Abstract

Argumenta-se que a agricultura urbana é uma prática onde a mulher é protagonista. Considerou-se um conjunto de hortas em Viena e Lisboa e 29 experiências relevantes em Portugal para testar o argumento. Os resultados demonstram uma evolução favorável à maior presença das mulheres nas hortas; uma hegemonia das mulheres no conjunto de práticas analisadas, seja como gestoras, seja como dinamizadoras dos processos; a emergência das mulheres nos projetos de empreendedorismo social. Em conclusão, reclama-se que o protagonismo das mulheres deve ser reconhecido e canalizado para a dinamização da economia nacional, através de políticas públicas. (Eng.) It is argued that urban agriculture is a practice where women are protagonists. In order to verify the argument a set of gardens in Vienna and Lisbon plus 29 relevant experiences in Portugal were used. The results show that woman presence in the gardens has space to increase; women are in hegemony as process managers; women are leading social entrepreneurship projects. In conclusion, we claim that women protagonist role should be visible, and supported by public policies in order to promote the national economy in a fair and sustainable way.
