Refiguring Citizenship

Research Perspectives on GenderJustice in the Latin
American and Caribbean Region1

MAXINE MOLYNEUX2

The advances in women's rights in the last 20 years are enormous,
changing not only laws and recognising citizen's rights, but also
contesting the cultural significance of politics. Possibly the most
important achievement is the fact of having demonstrated that the
struggles of women cannot be isolated from the struggles to overcome
exclusions and inequalities of all types, and the authoritarian logic of
our societies and states.

Virginia Vargas Valente3

1 To clarify: the scope of this paper focuses primarily on Latin America,
but includes some discussion of the Caribbean which is included, as is
customary, in the LAC statistical conventions. A more detailed treatment
of the Caribbean countries is beyond the scope of the present remit.

2 I would like to thank Edurne Larracoechea and Kuldip Kaur for their
invaluable assistance with research for this paper, and my colleagues
Helga Baitenmann and Fiona Macaulay at the Institute for the Study of
the Americas.

3 Interview with author, 2003. Vargas was a founder of the feminist
NGO Flora Tristan in Peru and was Co-ordinator of Latin American and
Caribbean NGOs for the Fourth World Conference of Women.
