Abstract

The work falls on them, gathering firewood for the fire, looking for “bread-for the children”, basket in hand, returning from the field. From informal to formal jobs, Cape Verdean women survived between the Portuguese colonizer and the Cape Verdean man. Knowing how Cape Verdean nurses perceive Cape Verdean Women was the motto for this work, which seeks to not only access nurses' perspective on the characteristics of Cape Verdean women, as well as the health needs of these women. Bardin's qualitative content analysis methodology was used. We conclude that Cape Verdean women, even today, are characterized as working women, focused on the domestic space, often victims of gender violence, and with low literacy. In view of the health needs, it is identified that nurses consider it necessary for these women to have free consultations and better care in the field of maternal and obstetric health.
