    Abstract

    In this article we consider problems regarding the government of working women. Specifically, we focus on particular forms of governmentality that operate on women of the third world. We tackle this objective, firstly, by delineating the field of governmentality studies, then we approach the debate about how this concept has been used within the field of work and organization studies. Lastly, based on the problematizations and critiques formulated by both feminism and postcolonial feminism to those approaches we delimited the problem of the government of women within the contemporary work regimes.
