Des jouets roses « pour filles », aux innombrables représentations de femmes en rose, « le rose c’est pour filles » est un constat et une affirmation performative, c’est-à-dire autoréalisatrice. Il est à la fois un symbole de féminité, et il associe au féminin tout ce qu’il colore. Partant du désir de comprendre les origines et les modalités de l’a...

Le peintre rococo place judicieusement des touches de rose — sur des rubans, ses joues et ses lèvres — afin de dénoter du pouvoir de la favorite qui a su imposer son influence sur les arts et la mode e...

Tatouages, cheveux colorés, garde-robe excentrique : avoir un corps qui défie délibérément les normes, qu’elles soient physiques ou socio-culturelles (modifications corporelles, travestissement, etc.), sème toujours le trouble dans les espaces dominants. Corps réifiés, exotisés, fétichisés ou rejetés, avoir un « look atypique » vous classe tantôt d...

L’association symbolique du rose avec le féminin commence aux États-Unis au début du XXe siècle, avec la différenciation des layettes selon le sexe des bébés. Elle ne se fixe cependant définitivement que dans les années 1950 (Paoletti, 2012). Le rose est depuis employé pour rendre apparent le féminin, que ce soit dans les représentations figurative...

From the age of two, children are looking for “gender clues”, which they hunt down and assimilate until they are five to seven years old. There is no more neutral object, and almost everything is categorized by the child according to whether it is something feminine or masculine. Attempting to capture and reproduce the characteristic elements of th...

Feminine color in the West, pink crosses several times the prison world, especially via the Baker-Miller Pink (BMP). This shade of pink would have the capacity to appease the prisoners if one paints their cell.

Cars are strongly associated with the masculine, while the pink colour is associated with the feminine. By combining these two elements, pink cars articulate differently with gender ideologies, depending on whether they belong to men or women, depending on whether they are shown with men or with women. The gender relations signified by the pink car...

Covering a wide range of pale pink, rosy beige or salmon pink, the millennial pink invades the world of fashion since the end of 2015. It wants to image the generation of millennials: gender fluid or genderless. Falsely subversive, this trend is based on the recent (1930) but strong association of pink with the feminine, and diverts gender stereoty...
