Abstract : The context of Brazilian women's football has developed was throught moments of banishment, restrictions and struggles. The first regulation of this category was signed only in 1983. Since then, the women's football has become a sport practiced by women all over the country. Clubs and championships have emerged, but the sense of worry of the ban still remains inserted into idea of rejection, needing necessary great commitment of these athletes, so this category do not remain invisible. In recent years, however, big changes have been observed in FIFA regulations - such the introduction of gender equality in the FIFA Statutes and the creation of the Regulations on Working with Intermediaries - which was directly reflected in the careers concept of the women footballers. This work aims to make an analysis of these changes, as well as of Women s Football in Brazil. Thus, I take into account the insertion of these footballers in a large networks of social relations, in which their carreers are produced. I develop an argument about which changes the ations of control and power relations directly influence in the delimitation of this network and, consequently, in the (re) formulation of the carreer projects of these athletes. Therefore, sports management agencies / agents, football regulations, mediascape, clubs and the feminist movements of footballers are important elements in the disposition of this network. In addition, I present a landscape of the women soccer players mobility, in view of the flows that Brazilian players take abroad, with emphasis on the years 2016/2017.
