Resumen:
The development of gender in Chilean society is strongly mediated by the androcentric culture, where masculinity is associated with the projection of strength and femininity is linked to the cult of beauty. Therefore, the objective of this study was to qualitatively analyze the internal regulations of different school education centers in Chile, in order to recognize the presence of sexist norms that stereotype corporality. The research methodology used corresponds to the qualitative and documentary approach, so that the internal regulations of 21 educational establishments were analyzed. The results present nine sexist regulations, which refer to the body image of men and women. Therefore, it is concluded that the educational centers in Chile are stereotyping the corporality of the students through a sexist education.
