MINOR LIVESTOCK AND GENDER APPROACH: THEORETICAL AND METHODOLOGICAL CONTRIBUTIONS

Abstrac


The presence of sheep and goats in Mexico is marginal, compared to other parts of the world. Their consumption is also reduced compared to beef’s. However, both species are important for the Mexican culinary tradition and for peasant economy. This article pursues two objectives: analyzing the work relationships in sheep and goat production systems in Mexico; and suggesting new theoretical-methodological approaches for research and public policy design for the sector. It argues that gender analysis of minor livestock productive systems allows understanding and effectively documenting the work of women and men in animal production, as well as gender inequalities in the access and control of grazing lands, inputs, veterinary services and credit.

Palabras clave: access, control, gender division of labor, small ruminants, productive systems.
