    • Abstract:
      Marisa Belausteguigoitia Rius, Mariana Gomez Alvarez Icaza and Ivdn Gonzalez Marquez argue that indigenous and rural women play a leading role in the fight for the defence of their territories and its natural resources. They introduce the essays and testimonies of this section of the journal in order to show the complexity of the situation lived in Mexico, related to land, territory and the defence of natural resources, especially for indigenous women. In this context, they propose that indigenous women's strategies represent a source of hope and an alternative to the fruitless male-dominated debates of the modern state. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
