ROSO, Adriane  and  GASS, Rosinéia. New times, new places: reflections on motherhood within women’s empowerment groups. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.2, pp. 442-461. ISSN 1677-1168.

Taking the concept of gender as the interpretative axis, this interventionresearch aimed to identify and analyze the narratives from a women’s empowerment group, focusing on social representations of motherhood. Clinical listening with floating attention was applied in the analysis of the narratives. Afterwards, inferences and interpretations were made based on the perspective of Critical Social Psychology. The group became a potentiating field to yield reflections on subjectivity and gender relations, allowing the development of discussions about themes related to women’s space in face of social changes and their impact in the way to experience motherhood. Beyond an identification space, the group enabled the opening of opportunities to transform social representations, providing support for the process of empowerment and desire for changes in the relations women go through in their daily lives.
