SOUZA, Ana Luiza de Figueiredo. Maternal Tensionings in Contemporaneity: Articulations with the Brazilian Scenario. Revista Crítica de Ciências Sociais [online]. 2020, n.123, pp.47-68. ISSN 2182-7435.

From the global North to the global South, there is increasing debate on motherhood, with Brazil emerging as a fruitful field of research in this context. As a country that preserves conservative ideologies and also absorbs new technological and cultural manifestations, it displays particular phenomena that establish dialogue with foreign practices. This article explores the sociocultural conjunctures around the wealth of discussions about motherhood, aiming to find similarities and divergences between dynamics of Brazil and other countries. To do so, the paper contextualizes historical movements that have led to the current situation of women and motherhood in the capitalist West; examines the tensions in the coexistence between contemporary and historically constructed practices; and discusses to what extent the processes of continuity or rupture between them occur.

Palavras-chave : Brazil; female identity; feminism; motherhood; womanhood; women's health.
