This article records the flow of young people from the riverside who migrate to the municipality of Abaetetuba in search of better living conditions, formal employment and higher education and/or technical courses. Data were collected in semi-structured interviews with young people in the countryside and in the city, women between 15 and 27 years old, born and raised in communities and, later, some settled in city spaces. Out of a total of 37 young people interviewed in the city and on the farm (the young people interviewed at the farm are those who intend to live in the city at some point in their lives), 25 are female, which is equivalent to 68% of respondents. The research highlights the reality experienced by these young women in the countryside and the devaluation of female work in rural areas. With the increasing migration of women from island communities to the city, the riverside environment has also suffered from masculinization and aging.
