BRACAMONTE, Lucía. Catholicism and the Female Condition: Gender Representations of Motherhood and Domesticity in the Southwest Argentinean Buenos Aires Press in the Early 20th Century. Secuencia [online]. 2014, n.88, pp.88-108. ISSN 2395-8464.

This paper identifies and describes the meanings ascribed to motherhood and domesticity by analyzing gender representations in the discourse of the confessional press that appears in Bahía Blanca and travels through its zone of influence during the first three decades of the 20th century. It is argued that Catholic men and women who write in the press share the concept of dominant sexual difference and address the problem of the female condition by focusing on the notions of domesticity and motherhood, which refer to the role of the biological and material reproduction of society in the context of the sexual division of labor. However, some of them reformulate them in response to the epochal changes that have impacted the family, as a result of which they express ideas which, while not in themselves intended to subvert gender relations, endorse certain modern mutations.

Palavras-chave : Women; Catholicism; media; motherhood; domesticity; Argentina.
