Abstract:

SPANISH ABSTRACT:
La incursión de las mujeres en el mundo de la guerra ha sido un fenómeno poco estudiado. Su creciente vinculación como combatientes en las guerras contemporáneas, incluida la colombiana, amerita una reflexión desde la academia, encaminada a develar la compleja significación de este fenómeno. A la luz de corrientes de pensamiento contemporáneas, particularmente del feminismo de la diferencia, este artículo busca aproximarse al fenómeno, colocando en el centro del análisis el cuerpo y la palabra de las mujeres -su corporalidad-, como lugar e instrumento donde la guerra se vive, se significa y se narra, buscando abrir horizontes interpretativos que permitan recoger y traducir fielmente las voces de las mujeres combatientes, tradicionalmente invisibilizadas tanto en el drama de la guerra como en la búsqueda de la paz.
 
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: 
The incursion of women in the world of war has been a phenomena in which few research has been made. Nowadays, the growing presence of these combatants in contemporary wars, in which the Colombian war is included, claims for a academic reflection that seeks to explain the whole meaning of the phenomena. With the support of contemporary trends of thought, particularly the feminism of the difference, the present article aims for an approximation to the topic that places at the core of the analysis woman's speech and body, this as a place and tool where the war is lived, signified and narrated; thus, searching for new interpretative paths that permit recover and translate accurately the combatants' voices. Combatants that have been traditionally diminished both in the war drama and in the searching of peace.
