In this article, we discuss the ways in which the concept of image is being debated today, within gender studies in education. To do so, methodologically, from the production of GT 23 - Gender, Sexuality and Education of ANPEd, from 2003 to 2015, we analyzed the studies that elect image as central, observing the way they work with this concept, establishing the frames of what we call an image-knowledge. We discussed how the image, built as a tool that educate our bodies, eventually establishes itself as a decisive tool for the debate on the pedagogy of gender and sexuality, but, at the same time, for the construction and strengthening of a kind of contemporary feminine mystique. Finally, we suggested, with the help of authors such as Didi-Huberman and Butler, other theoretical-methodological relationships with images, questioning them in the place from where they invite us to create other ways of living gender and sexuality.
