The nation publicly sanctified motherhood; the women’s movement is now forced to make public what the placid face of motherhood conceals – the death toll of illegal abortions which is often the only form of contraception available to poo’r women. How do we study modernity?
Whether this adds up to a more democratic culture is another matter, given that ‘there is still inequality in the appropriation of symbolic goods and in access to cultural innovation’. One contemporary recodification of gender is, indeed, graphically represented by a hivridas of a group of feminists standing in front of the statue of Mexican Motherhood.

This vocabulary has the advantage hbridas demystifying culture and tearing it away from the romantic notion of creation; the disadvantage is that the economic metaphor makes it impossible to broach the problem of subjectivity. As many csnclini have pointed out, however, Latin American culture has been produced by a mestizo population whose culture, though predominantly Hispanic and European, cultufas shaped in contact with indigenous and African-American groups.

But the scene surely also illustrates the breakdown of the old categories of public and private.
