Bioethics and gender (Bioética e gênero), 2008.

Starting with a brief overview of the construction of the interface between gender studies and bioethics, this paper analyzes three issues that are relevant to women and have been approached and discussed in this new field: the conscientious objection; the clinical research with women; and aging. All these topics, in which asymmetry is analyzed under the gender perspective, have special relevance, especially considering the impact of individualism and market structures on social behavior and the symbolic dimension. These examples show that gender perspectives have always been part of bioethics analyses and reflections. The study concludes that the recognition of gender sensibility for the teaching of ethical thinking and for the bioethical propositions is one of the challenges already incorporated by the first generation of researchers on bioethics in Brazil.
