BASIC FEMININE NECESSITIES AND FIGITIVES OF SOCIAL POLITICS, IN NATIVE MAIZE PRODUCING COMMUNITIES

Abstrac


The objective of this study was to understand and analyze how rural women redefine their needs when facing the imposition of social programs designed to satisfy basic feminine needs, promote the advancement of poor women, and develop their families’ welfare. The analysis stems from the analogy of the container, where the needs are fluids that take the shape of the recipient that contains them, and the container lid is the social programs. The study was performed with women from two communities that produce native maize in Estado de México and who have been subjects of social programs, at the same time that they have experienced the consequences of the elimination of state supports for subsistence production. The results show that these programs sustain the reproduction roles traditionally assigned to rural women, although in face of the changes brought on by globalization processes in their daily lives, the existence of small leaks from the container is specified, which translate into fugitive needs, defying the definition of the State over basic feminine needs.

Palabras clave: needs container, Estado de México, gender roles, social subjects.
