CARDENAS-RODRIGUEZ, Rocío; TERRON-CARO, Teresa  y  MONREAL-GIMENO, Ma. Carmen. Redefinition of gender roles and relations in international migrations. Qualitative study in the State of Tamaulipas. Pap. poblac [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.95, pp.153-179. ISSN 2448-7147.

The increase in women initiating migration chain, has been a qualitative change in the process. Multiple investigations, including ours, have shown how the woman takes an active role in both decision making and initiatives, and in the pursuit of its objectives. This gives the migrants a greater independence and makes them become shapers of their own destiny and that of their sons / daughters. They maintain family ties but are exposed to greater risks. Their dependence has been devalued against themselves and society, they can be abused and beaten, but it is considered a violation of their rights. Culturally, social roles (productive / reproductive) were distributed, depending on the attribution of characteristics opposite to men and women, creating inequality.

Palabras llave : Gender; stereotypes; female migration; education.
