From Mexico to Argentina, through Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil, this compilation presents case studies that intertwine and question different perspectives and “fables” about the gender order, the closeness of women to nature, harmony between women and men of ancestral cultures and their respectful practices with the land, as well as the blessing or curse associated with a nation that has mineral or oil resources. The first part explores the forms and consequences of the normalization of extractivism in rural and mostly indigenous areas of the mentioned countries. The second part focuses on the sexual markets associated with populations with extractive activity and the debates and conflicts between those who live from sex work and / or defend the right to choose such activity, and the bodies that pursue it as equivalent to trafficking. of people. “This compilation” - write Susanne Hofmann and Melisa Cabrapan, coordinators of the work - “presents an ethnographic work that analyzes how the extraction of resources generates and restructures the social relations between local and migrant communities, corporate actors, state officials and their groups broader interest and investigates how extraction economies create new gender domains for the exercise of power and new struggles for authority, in the micro and macro ”.
