Faced to the complexity of contemporary women's life, we raised some questions about the main conflicts of working and motherhood conjunction. The increasing inclusion of women in the market, occupying positions previously exclusive for males, highlights their work skills, but entirely ignores the individuality of women compared to the man, who had not experienced body transformations imposed by the generation of a family, and does not play the same responsibility to the offspring care. Based on a brief literature review about maternity and women's work, we noted the motherhood representation is persistent, demanding women keeping to be mothers even while working - despite the adverse conditions which make those functions painful - and censure the choice for one of those experiences: the maternity exclusively; or primary work and do not include maternity plan. It has been shown the importance of that debate to reinforce the working policies aiming equity of gender in the modern society.
