Zapatista Women: Goals and Reality

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 11, 2007

Richmex2 blogs about women, Chiapas, and the Zapatista struggle and quotes  Marc Becker :

“Within Zapatista communities and more broadly in Maya society, there appears to be a gap between what leadership projects and what communities experience. For example, the Zapatista Junta de Buen Gobierno that governs the Caracol of Morelia is comprised of three men and three women. Plenaries at the Zapatista Encounter with the Peoples of the World in July at the Caracol of Oventic were heavily dominated by women. But during a short visit to the autonomous Zapatista community of Olga Isabel, we only met with three men and it appears that women played an insignificant role in community governance.”

    very interesting, but I don’t agree with you

    [Editor’s Note: Next time someone doesn’t agree with a post please give a reason and explanation why you don’t agree with a post. Simply saying “I don’t agree with you” is not a comment it’s just an asinine thought blurted out. Also, please remember, this is a blog aggregator so none of the editors here write the posts the link (only on occasion does this happen) so please be specific on who you are not agreeing with.]
