MUNOZ, Enara Echart  e  VILLARREAL, Maria del Carmen. Women’s Struggles Against Extractivism in Latin America and the Caribbean. Contexto int. [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.2, pp.303-325.  Epub 29-Jul-2019. ISSN 1982-0240.

Since Cynthia Enloe asked, ‘Where are the women?’ in 1989, studies about the place of women in International Relations have increased. However, most of the analyses since then have focused on the participation of women in international organisations, events and institutional spaces, making invisible other practices and places occupied by black or indigenous women from the South. This article aims to highlight the role of women at the international level, analysing their performance in disputes over the meanings of development in Latin America and the Caribbean, based on struggles against extractivism. In addition to denouncing the impacts of this development model, these struggles seek to construct alternatives that, although they could be essentially local, have been multiplied and articulated throughout the Latin American and the Caribbean territory, as part of a broader resistance to the dominant extractivism in the region. These struggles will be mapped using a database of 259 conflicts around mining activities, developed by the Research Group on International Relations and Global South (GRISUL).

Palavras-chave : women’s struggles; social movements; development; extractivism; Latin America and the Caribbean.
