This research aimed to investigate the factors that build and support a model of education for girls, which is indicated to be supported by socially diffused patterns of femininity. The investigation was based on the analysis of three books that are directed to girls, and that portrays their education in a certain historical moment, namely: As Meninas Exemplares by Condessa de Ségur; The Great Big Glorious Book for Girls by Rosemary Davidson and Sarah Vine and As Meninas by Lygia Fagundes Telles. The analysis was made from the intersection of gender and sexuality studies with childhood studies that problematizes childhood as a sociological construction. As a result, the main models and ideals that refer to girls' education were pointed out, questioning the way in which these assumptions can/should be revised and reinterpreted in contemporary times.
