ORTALE, Susana. Programas de salud sexual y reproductiva y maternidad adolescente en La Plata (Buenos Aires, Argentina). Avá [online]. 2009, n.15, pp. 00-00. ISSN 1851-1694.

Stigmatizing gaze of teenage motherhood and the aim to control the sexuality from the health sector, is recent and different for men and women. We know that gender and age categories, as cultural constructions that refer to basic relations of inequality-crossed by particular political-economic structures, are loaded with meanings that are settled in a social and  naturalizing field predisposed to reinforce stereotypes and relations of domination.  The study is placed in the general problem of aknowledgement of rights in the programs of sexual and reproductive health in adolescent girls from low environment. This frame brings into focus the contrast between the normative framework and the meaning motherhood assumes for adolescents. For this purpose, we analyze national health programs, of Buenos Aires province and the municipality of La Plata as well as speeches made in interviews to twenty teens in poor neighborhoods of the city of La Plata. The analysis of the program explores the incorporation of gender and political interpretation of the problems of sexuality and reproduction of adolescents in the context of human rights and the opinions of the informants explores the interpellation.

Palabras clave : Teenage motherhood; Human rights; Gender approach; Sexual and reproductive health policies.
