Join us for an enlightening discussion on different analytical approaches to situate men within the study of reproductive behavior. Dr. Figueroa-Perea proposes exploring the relational, social, and potentially conflictive nature of sexualized reproduction, questioning the “feminization of reproduction”.

  • Can we promote this analytical and theoretical approach within the current context of power relations?
  • Which are the main political and ethical dilemmas when considering men as reproductive actors from a gender approach?

If we study reproduction as a gender relational process rather than as isolated events, we might recover the specific sexual and reproductive characteristics of men and women, without negating the dimension of power.
