Resumen

BARD WIGDOR, Gabriela. Political Cultures. (Re)Signifying the Category from a Gender Perspective. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2016, vol.61, n.227, pp.137-166. ISSN 0185-1918.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0185-1918(16)30024-1.

Androcentric perspectives on the practices of women and their social place are reproduced in the foundations behind concepts such as political culture. In the majority of studies on political culture, gender is understood as sex and as a quantitative fact, disregarding it as meaningful to explain the political cultures of subjects. The absence of discussions about gender expresses the androcentricity present in the dominant scientific outlook. If we widen the notion of what is politics beyond what concerns the state and the institutional functioning of representative democracy, and highlight the diverse subjectivities, women -as much as other genders- have the same political potential as men do, and, further, given their subaltern positions, it is possible that they are able to establish radical demands for social change. A critical historical analysis of the concept with an interdisciplinary perspective is proposed, to arrive at a discussion around women's political cultures. The article expounds three questions which organize the presentation of the different approaches: Where is political culture studied? With whom and for who is it examined? Why are political cultures studied?

Palabras llave : political culture; androcentric scientific knowledge; women; gender; situated knowledge.
