The studies about gender have been developed since 1960, through the feminist movement that aroused the interest of various sciences, among them, Geography, that study the space produced by society. Getting the subjects, too. In a specific, case the women, as a social subject, worker, teacher, disruptive. From this perspective, the objective of this research was to understand and recognize the role of women working for the presentation Suits of Congo (Ternos de Congo) in Festivity in Honor of Our Lady of the Rosary (Nossa Senhora do Rosário), performed in Catalão (GO). Thus, this study, the study guided by the precepts of qualitative research, following, simultaneously, the steps of theoretical research and practice research. In the practice research were utilized the practice diary techniques, interviews and photographic registers. Then, made the organization, systematization and analysis of materials collected for obtaining and presentation the results. The Festivity in Honor of Our Lady of the Rosary is a popular festival that brings in its three-dimensional context: religious; commercial and cultural, in all dimensions female labor is essential and it is concentrated in the event behind the scenes, and thus, lower visibility. The theoretical research combined with practice research found that this invisibility is a part of the historical construction of the division of roles for men and women. That over time associated women to the private space, and men to the public space, a coercion of the patriarchal model. That it is still present in society, and most notorious through the sexual division of labor. The approach of the female labor reality in Festival allowed understanding the essence of it. Visualizing the movement of society and noting that there are constraints. Facing the patriarchal model is not only in the break, but also in the redefinition of roles in which men and women assume positions contrary to what was promoted by the patriarchy. However, women assume new functions without break away from housework. Associated with the less visible space, domestic work imprisons women to social invisibility. Which is not consistent with reality, because through Rosario Festival was established that the women are social promoters, they are everywhere, and they act concurrently in the private and public space.
