The Portuguese democratic revolution of April 1974 initiated the third democratic wave (Huntington) and was crucial to dismantle the profound unequal structures prevailing under the authoritarian regime. However, the formal equalization process faced a slow change in social and political mentalities and was matched by incipient feminist movements. Unequal power structures thus persist(ed) long after the democratic turn. In this context, this presentation will focus on the role of the Portuguese Constitutional Court. It will engage with selected case law under a gender perspective and trace how and when the gender factor has impacted the rulings and the diachronic dynamics underlying this perspective.
