ORDEN DE GÉNERO E INSATISFACCIÓN CORPORAL: UN ANÁLISIS CUALITATIVO

Maria Teresa Valverde Martin, Marta Gutiérrez Sastre

Resumo


This article addresses the unsatisfactory experience with one’s own body from a gender perspective. The research uses qualitative methodology to analyze personal accounts about tense corporeity. Sixteen semi-structured interviews were carried out; they were focused on life experiences, self-image and  personal experiences with body. The results are organized around three fields. Firstly, socialization and family relationships in one's perception of oneself; secondly, the subordination of health and beauty to a stereotypical image of gender; finally, the uneven experience of tense corporeity for men and women, limited to the physical aspect for men, and full of distressing and emotional tinge for women. Compared with other studies, this research confirms the distinct relationship with the body between men and women.
