CAREY, Alina. What happens at home? Immigrant women from the Andean Northern Patagonia. 1900-1935. Aljaba [online]. 2011, vol.15, pp. 159-174. ISSN 1669-5704.

Early last century, the Andean Northern Patagonia people established itself within a context of unequal power relations and a heterogeneous population. Women were then distinguished only by their ethnic and class origins, which included indigenous, Chilean and European immigrants. They were unified by their subordination to male mandates. Within this regional environment I tried to examine the role played by the immigrant women in the first half of the twentieth century; who live their life trough multiple activities in their home and for their family. Women who were usually a forgotten issue for historians. The aim of this paper is to contribute, from a regional and gender perspective, to the history studies of these women. Women who were active participants in the migration process, and had an important role in biological and cultural society reproduction.
