MARCOS, Cristina Moreira  and  MENDONCA, Renata Lucindo. The mother/woman disjunction from a conversation practice. Ágora (Rio J.) [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.1, pp.94-102.  Epub Jan 24, 2020. ISSN 1809-4414.

For Freud, the woman is inexorably linked to a phallic claim and the assumption of feminility does coincide with motherhood. For Lacan, on the other hand, the feminility does not overlap completely with motherhood. The conversation practice we conducted with teenagers, both mothers and pregnant, has shown that, in spite of all the progress made by women in the last decades, the meaning and the image of motherhood around the feminility are still defined by the phallic. However, all the efforts to close the feminility in motherhood does not stop failing.

Keywords : women; motherhood; feminility; psychoanalysis.
