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.

Author: Alba Nubia Rodríguez Pizarro

Abstract:

El objetivo de este trabajo es contribuir al conocimiento de los actores del conflicto armado (organizaciones político-militares) y a la discusión sobre la confrontación armada en Colombia, a partir del análisis de la construcción social y cultural de un actor colectivo insurgente que emplea la violencia como medio de acción y que ha estado inmerso en el conflicto armado de larga duración que se vive en el país desde hace aproximadamente cinco décadas. La construcción social y cultural de los actores y sus acciones implica individuos en relación (hombres y mujeres), por tanto la perspectiva de género se convirtió en un enfoque transversal a la indagación y al análisis de los procesos que subyacen a la construcción social y cultural del actor de referencia.

Domestic violence prevention through the Constructing Violence-free Masculinities programme: an experience from Peru

Citation:

Mitchell, Rhoda. 2013. “Domestic violence prevention through the Constructing Violence-free Masculinities programme: an experience from Peru.” Gender and Development, 21 (1): 97-109.

Author: Rhoda Mitchell

Abstract:

This paper examines work undertaken with male perpetrators of violence in the Construction of Violence-free Masculinities, a project run by the Centro Mujer Teresa de Jesus, a Women’s Centre located in a poor peri-urban district of Lima, Peru, in conjunction with Oxfam-Quebec. Centre staff faced the challenge of how to work with men who are violent towards their intimate partners. They use a community education approach, to challenge powerful stereotypes about gender roles, to question men’s assumed dominance over women, and support men to construct new forms of masculinity, without violence. Ultimately, the programme seeks to modify and change the beliefs, values, attitudes, and behaviours of men who are aggressors.

Keywords: masculinity, Intimate partner violence, domestic violence, men's groups

Messing with Gender in Feminist Political Ecology

Citation:

Mollett, Sharlene, and Caroline Faria. 2013. “Messing with Gender in Feminist Political Ecology.” Geoforum 45 (March): 116–25.

Authors: Sharlene Mollett , Caroline Faria

Abstract:

Feminist political ecology (fpe) is at a crossroads. Over the last 2 years, feminist political ecologists have begun to reflect on and debate the strengths of this subfield. In this article, we contribute by pointing to the limited theorization of race in this body of work. We argue that fpe must theorize a more complex and messier, notion of ‘gender’, one that accounts for race, racialization and racism more explicitly. Building on the work of feminist geography and critical race scholarship, we argue for a postcolonial intersectional analysis in fpe – putting this theory to work in an analysis of race, gender and whiteness in Honduras. With this intervention we demonstrate how theorizing race and gender as mutually constituted richly complicates our understanding of the politics of natural resource access and control in the Global South.
