Abstract

Con frecuencia, es común observar en las calles argentinas gran cantidad de movilizaciones públicas; éste es, sin duda, uno de los signos que evidencian hasta qué punto la militancia forma parte de la cultura del país. A través de una investigación en la Asociación Civil Juana Azurduy, este ensayo se sitúa la militancia feminista dentro de un contexto de marginalidad que existe en la Provincia de Buenos Aires. Se analizan observaciones acerca del funcionamiento cotidiano de esta organización, observaciones de talleres educativos ofrecidos a niñxs, y entrevistas con dirigentes para examinar cómo funciona la militancia feminista en este contexto y cómo se distingue esta militancia de otras.

Often, it is common to observe in the Argentine streets a great amount of public mobilizations; this is undoubtedly one of the signs that show the extent to which militancy is part of the country's culture. Through an investigation in the Civil Association Juana Azurduy, this essay situates feminist militancy within a context of marginality that exists in the Province of Buenos Aires. We analyze observations about the daily functioning of this organization, observations of educational workshops offered to children, and interviews with leaders to examine how feminist militancy works in this context and how this militancy is distinguished from others.
