Maternity and private law

Ano de criação

Private law, especially family law, treats motherhood in a very dubious way. If, on the one hand, maternity and parenthood relationships are defined and regulated, the impacts of maternity on the family’s legal dynamics are not considered, which is a reflection of the general invisibility of mothers in society. The object of the research is to analyze, in comparative law and in the Brazilian law, tools that can contribute to a better equalization of the effects of motherhood on the family, especially its negative impacts on professional life and on building women’s heritage. These effects are disregarded in an eventual dissolution of the marriage and division of assets.
