SILVA, Janaína  and  QUEIROZ E MELO, Maria de Fátima Aranha de. A double-sided mirror: to be or not to be a mother?. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2020, vol.10, n.1, pp. 85-106. ISSN 2238-152X.

Maternity has long been considered indispensable for the female experience. However, in recent decades there has been a movement contrary to a naturalization of maternal sentiment based only on women's belonging to the feminine gender. This work is the result of an ongoing Master's Degree, whose objective is to describe how the conception about motherhood was built, as well as analyze through the Challenge of Real Maternity, posted on the Facebook platform, stories and documentaries published on YouTube, how people manifest themselves about this subject. Through this analysis, we perceive the need to leverage the discussion also around a non-maternity. Methodologically, we adopted the Actor-Network Theory to map and discuss the translations performed among the various actors involved in the controversy and because we understand that the data available on the Internet constitute an excellent field of research, since they potentialize the traceability of events.

Keywords : Social networks; Actor-network theory; Feminine; Maternity; Abortion.
