Join us for Assistant Professor of Sociology Sarah Warren’s talk: “Indigenous Feminism: The Possibilities and Binds of Tradition for Mapuche Women in Argentina.”
In the talk, she discusses Mapuche women’s activism in Argentina. In doing so, she will focus on how Mapuche women use tradition and traditional clothing. She suggests that Mapuche women in Argentina use traditional clothing to appear more authentic. “This gives them more legitimacy when they make political demands, but it also can constrain them to narrow “traditional” roles within Mapuche organizations. Thus, tradition presents both possibilities and constraints for indigenous women.”
