The body, as a political tool, is a receiver and a transmitter of violence and affection, of pain and enjoyment, of rights and duties—a surface on which all types of social rules and standards are engraved, which has the transformative capacity of giving a new meaning to the collective imagination.


Women’s struggle to take control over their own bodies has become a machinery of power which, in its attempts to escape the mechanisms of social control, continues to generate new meanings concerning language, images and their own representation. In this context, the body becomes a struggle device to generate images of resistance against symbolic violence.
