'You know nothing, you are a woman': gender identities and resistance in indigenous women's groups in Chiapas, Mexico.
Based on ethnographic work carried out in several indigenous communities in Chiapas, this talk examines how indigenous men and women understand gender identities and gender relations since the Zapatista uprising; it critically examines how western feminist ideas meet indigenous ideologies in the practice of everyday life. How are such resistance imaginaries lived in practice by women whose everyday lives are shaped by neoliberal political and economic practices?
This papers shows, through the experience of indigenous women in Chiapas, that disrupting prevailing ideas is a slow and difficult process, but one that continues to produce alternative imaginaries for different ways of living.
