Mães Podem ser Heróis? Maternidade e Maternal Body Work nos Bombeiros Militares



Artigo principal Conteúdo

Eloisio Moulin de Souza

Resumo

Objetivo: o artigo analisa as práticas discursivas relacionadas à maternidade e ao maternal body work que circulam entre os bombeiros militares, por meio da construção cultural do bombeiro-herói, que afeta simultaneamente a construção das mulheres militares como mães e bombeiras ideais. Marco teórico: para tanto, foram utilizados os estudos sobre maternal body work e gênero nas organizações militares. Método: foram realizadas entrevistas semiestruturadas com bombeiras militares grávidas e mães, e os dados foram analisados através da análise foucaultiana do discurso (AFD). Resultados: o herói estabelece conflitos entre maternidade e trabalho, que reduzem o status das mulheres bombeiras na organização. Para lidar com tais conflitos e contradições, as mulheres bombeiras engajam-se em um maternal body work, buscando conciliar as demandas do trabalho com as demandas da maternidade. Conclusão: os resultados do artigo evidenciam que a construção do imaginário do bombeiro herói consiste em uma norma social não escrita, que estabelece relações de poder que inferiorizam e afastam, simultaneamente, os corpos maternais da possibilidade de serem considerados corpos heroicos e corpos ideais para o trabalho de bombeiro militar.
