GENDER INFLUENCE ON FEMININE WAYS OF PARTICIPATION IN PRODUCTIVE PROJECTS IN HUEYAPAN, MORELOS, MÉXICO

Abstrac


In this article, we consider the relationship between productive and cultural aspects within a framework of rural development with gender perspective. The backdrop is the community of Hueyapan, Morelos, where the population speaks Nahuatl and preserves its customs and traditions. The hypothesis was that productive projects in which women participate are influenced by gender roles in their success or failure. The methodology used was based on a qualitative approach and the techniques were: literature review, participative observation, semi-structured interviews, life histories and workshops. The conclusions indicate that traditional gender stereotypes (in regards to division of labor, couple relationships and kinship relationships) influence women's participation in projects. A successful experience in participation positively influences the rearrangement of gender patterns, making them more flexible for women and men.
