This work seeks to map and problematize the production of Developmental Psychology, considering the contributions of feminist studies in this field. For both part of a research design that is distributed in two axes that use the systematic review of literature and documentary analysis. The first will seek to raise and analyze the 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).
