21.01.2021

 

The research team of the project "La ideología de la maternidad intensiva como eje de la violencia simbólica" funded by the Unitat d'Igualtat of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, presents the final report with the most relevant results of an ethnographic work of life stories of mothers and their young and adolescent daughters. Among the main research findings, the idea of ​​motherhood as a social duty and central point in female construction stands out, as well as the responsibility and competence of mothers as main caregivers and moral responsible for upbringing.

The work with the daughters has allowed researchers to investigate future trends, while daughters understand that being a mother implies ceasing to be a woman and they associate motherhood with an inevitable resignation. Whether or not they want to be mothers, the ideals of intensive motherhood are deeply ingrained. Lastly, among the conclusions, the study shows that there is little criticism of the system. Mothers perceive their resignations as natural and daughters tend to be more critical with their own mothers than with the system.
