Keywords: gender | subjectivity | social phenomenology | mining

Women are gaining space in the public sphere, in relation to the labor market and social representations. In this context, the mineral extraction sector stands out, as it has been accepting women in all its functional extensions. Given this, we intend to analyze the process of gender relations in the organizational context of a mining company. Discussions that guide the study of gender relations and subjectivity in work are used as reference. Research methodology is based on social phenomenology as conceived by Alfred Schütz. We conclude that women have managed gains in the mining industry, but these achievements are due to masculinization, as in fact there is no respect and appreciation for their differences. The legitimacy of women's work occurs only according to existing standards of male performance. Thus, this work is relevant in its contribution to scientific research on gender, and to study the relationships between men and women in an environment with such unique characteristics as the mining industry. In addition, the work features a unique use of phenomenology in social research on gender and might serve as a reference for future investigations.
