The article asserts an obvious fact: ubiquitous,embodied gendered surveillance has increasingly become woven into the fabric of our everyday life. As part of our daily existence, it afects – explicitly or implicitly – all the areas of our gendered and embodied experiences, but also of our theoretical and critical thinking pertaining to our societies. Ingredients about complex surveillance realities should be added to many areas of theoretical relections on the body as more and more of “the dominant concerns and anxieties of society tend to be translated into disturbed images of the body” (Turner, 2008, 32).
