TRPIN, Verónica; RODRIGUEZ, María Daniela  and  BROUCHOUD, Silvia. Challenges in addressing rural labor in northern Patagonia: women in forestation, fruit and horticulture. Trab. soc. [online]. 2017, n.28, pp.267-280. ISSN 1514-6871.

This paper aims to reflect on our research practice in rural areas, about the tensions and challenges of women go to the field as holding glances with "lenses" gender. In the work of research has been necessary to consider our disciplinary backgrounds to address and bring more complex understandings of the studied regional issues: work processes and senses of belonging built by working men and women in various circuits rural production. Develop some tensions present in the fieldwork in production forestry, fruit and horticulture in the provinces of Neuquen and Rio Black, circuits in which men and women of migrant and indigenous origin are inserted. We believe that studying work spaces and experiences that men and women pass around work, is a double challenge: first to make complex, from ethnography, crosses between social class, gender and ethnicity as problematic unexplored field in agricultural studies. On the other hand, re-educate our gaze from the feminist contributions and not to reproduce, to masculinized activities, interpretive schemes which homogenize the worker category blurring gender inequalities present in rural areas.
