ELIZALDE, Silvia. Combative women: Two experiences of politic struggle against repression and exclusion in contemporary Argentine. Cuad. Fac. Humanid. Cienc. Soc., Univ. Nac. Jujuy [online]. 2006, n.31, pp.161-172. ISSN 1668-8104.

This piece looks at women’s participation when they shape forms of organizing that put forth different practices against exclusion, repression and discrimination within the current hegemony crisis context, post-december 2001, in the areas of the City of Buenos Aires. In order to convey so, I will briefly look at the history of other significative spaces for social and political organization constituted around gender issues in the 80’s. Then this work will focus on analysing two experiences of struggle against oppression that emerged conditioned by neoliberal and reppressive politics applied by the State since the early 90’s; experiences that blew up at the end of 2001. These experiences are the ones that follow: a) women workers that had jobs in a textile factory called Brukman and that struggled to keep their positions and to face the violence of being evicted; and b) the collective processes that women in state of prostitution -grouped in the Argentine Women for Human Rights Association- put out for dignifying their linving con conditions.

Palabras clave : Gender activism; Struggles against exclusion; Repressive policies.
