How are relationships built between the sexes? by Mind Map: How are relationships built between the sexes?

1. Influential factors in gender relations

2. Would it not be possible to imagine a historical social formation without genders, is Say without any sexual / biological foundation?

2.1. I have to confess that a future without sexual difference is beyond my imaginative faculties

2.2. The history of Gender represents several collective attempts not only to solve the puzzle, but to reach a solution once and for all.

2.3. Mind

2.3.1. I think the sexual difference will always be there to confuse and challenge us about what it means.

2.3.2. I am convinced of the psychoanalytic theory that postulates sexual difference as a problem without resolution, a puzzle with the to deal with but, ultimately, unsolvable.

2.4. However, it would be interesting to ask if the sexual difference could become an individual problem of social and political formations. It could be ask the question that anthropologists and historians are asking about cultures not Western

3. The dynamics of today's society have changed the definition of the feminine and the masculine. These variations have been product, in the last times, factors that have influenced its maintenance and transformation.

3.1. The cultural factors

3.1.1. conditioning the relationships between people are race, religion, historical context and traditional among others.

3.2. The media

3.2.1. projecting in some cases para- More of new and alternative life, and in others, stereotypes of per- Dreams idealized and utopian, as is the case of models, high Executives and handsome and famous guys.

3.3. The economic system

3.3.1. favoring the progressive incorporation of women to the labor market.

3.4. The political system

3.4.1. through the implementation of measures of positive action is contributing to the growing and gradual incorporation of women in decision making.

3.5. The demographic factors

3.5.1. birth control, have had a decisive influence on the planning of the birth control moment and number of pregnancies a woman wishes to have.

3.6. The education system

3.6.1. is allowing the progressive reduction of illiteracy rates, while facilitating the incorporation of women's empowerment at different levels of education.

4. Would you say that the history of women is a production of knowledge different from the history of the genre?

4.1. There has been a lot of interesting written history - there is still. I'm more attracted by the stories that integrate theoretical perspectives, since they are not limited to describing the life of women in another time, but they wonder how it works and what the genre builds.

4.2. Do you mean that the history of Women and the history of gender are different activities with different results? I I do not think so, at least not if the questions about gender are directing the story that It is being written about women.

5. Instead of the proposal of a "difference of sexes", Nicole-Claude Mathieu proposes an analysis of the "process of sexual differentiation". What do you think of this analytical proposal?

5.1. I have no objection, however it seems to me that the "process of differentiation sexual "implies that the difference of sex in itself does not pose any psychic problem.

5.2. His phrase suggests that sexual difference is more a sociological issue than psychological I think we should have a psychoanalytic perspective on this too.

6. the difference of genders should not exist, the only thing that women ask is equality between the sexes.
