Maternità surrogata: la biopolitica del corpo

Una lettura della convergenza tra patriarcato e ideologia neoliberale


Laura Sugamele    La Sapienza Università di Roma, Italia    


This essay will focus on the question of surrogate motherhood as a problem that reveals considerable ethical dilemmas and this element seems to be linked to influences of a neoliberal economic and patriarchal ideology. The conceptual perspective is that of a discussion on modernity and the technology processes relating to the female reproductive sphere, identifiable as the new horizon of a material androcentric mechanism of the body – and in a post-colonial perspective – that sees the feminine potentiality of ‘giving life’ as a resource that can be exploited, a problem which highlights the concept of self-determination on the body.

Keywords: Surrogate motherhood. Neoliberal ideology. Patriarchy. Female reification.
