Abstract:

SPANISH ABSTRACT: 

Este artículo reflexiona sobre la historia del acceso de las mujeres a la tierra y la divisón sexual del trabajo del mundo rural en el marco del proceso de colonización campesina llevado a cabo en la inspección del Tillavá, departamento del Meta. A partir de la epistemología feminista y mediante el estudio de relatos de vida se pudo comprender que las condiciones materiales precarias en contextos de colonización se entrelazan con una división sexual del trabajo inequitativa particular del mundo rural, lo que termina generando obstáculos para el reconocimiento de los derechos a la propiedad y complejizando sus condicions laborales. 

 

ENGLISH ABSTRACT: 

This article is a reflection on the history of women’s access to land and the sexual division of labor in the rural world, in the framework of peasant colonization in the inspección—small township—of Tillavá, in the department of Meta. From feminist epistemology and through the study of life-histories we could understand that precarious economic circumstances in colonization contexts interweave with an inequitable sexual division of labor, typical in the rural world. This, eventually, posits an obstacle to the recognition of women’s rights to property, and makes their working conditions even harder.
