REARTES, Diana L.. Gender, ethnicity and generation in pregnancy prevention and interruption among young Mayan speaking migrant students in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas (Mexico) . Cuad. antropol. soc. [online]. 2011, n.33, pp. 71-92. ISSN 1850-275X.
In the past several years socio-demographic research in Mexico has been showing important changes in the sexual and reproductive lives of youth, especially among urban population. Hence the importance of exploring what processes are taking place among rural and indigenous youth, where events such as sexual initiation, the use of condoms or other forms of contraception, and knowledge vary according to the level of education, place of residence, language spoken, among other factors. The article looks into ways of pregnancy prevention and interruption among Mayan speaking students (both men and women), who have migrated from indigenous communities to the city of San Cristobal de las Casas, in Chiapas.
