Patrícia Galvão is one of the most controversial figures of the Semana de Arte Moderna, and the only woman writer of note associated with the movement, which was in most regards resolutely masculinist. As part of the revolt against the bourgeois values of her family, Galvão left her family home in Santos to live in São Paulo, where she had extensive ties to the industrial proletariat that accompanied the capitalist development of the city. The result was her socialist realist novel—one of the few signed by women in Latin America—Parque industrial (1933). Galvão, a member of the Communist Party at the time the novel was written, Galvão saw feminism as a claim exercised by bourgeois women on masculine privilege, not a revolutionary movement of social justice. Although Brazil's academic establishment continues to pay little heed to this important early feminist figure, Galvão now enjoys a secure place in any history of women's writing in Brazil.
