DZIB CAN, Ubaldo. Patriarchy and social class. Change and permanence in gender, generational and class relations in rural southwestern Campeche, 1940-2010. Relac. Estud. hist. soc. [online]. 2015, vol.36, n.143, pp.233-278. ISSN 2448-7554.

This work explores the processes of the mutual formation of gender, generational and social class relations since the mid-20th century in two rural localities in southwestern Campeche, Mexico. The results led me to question approaches that construct discourses of gender equality without considering other axes of inequality that may be interwoven with that of gender. In contrast, this study shows that: 1) gender relations have been contradictory in the sense that the improvement of the positions of some women with respect to patriarchs has generally resulted from their class subordination in relation to other groups; and, 2) even in such repositionings, gender distances have been maintained due to the fact that change and permanence are two inseparable aspects of the dynamics of the production of hierarchies among groups.

Palabras llave : Patriarchy; class; gender; generation; social inequalities.
