The aim of this article is to analyze the process of institutionalization of women’s history through the creation of study centers, and the related publications in the Southern Cone. For that purpose we consider a selection of journals as examples of collective texts that played a considerable role in institutionalizing study centers and professionalizing the field, namely in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Uruguay. In addition, we consider the advances in women’s history, since it was one of the disciplines on which women’s studies had a significant impact. In summary, we argue that due to the publication of specific journals, a more complex set of problems and questions arose, allowing the development of women’s studies converging later to the wider thematics of gender studies.
