WILKIS, Ariel e PARTENIO, Florencia. Dinero y obligaciones generizadas: las mujeres de sectores populares frente a las circulaciones monetarias de redes políticas y familiares. La ventana [online]. 2010, vol.4, n.32, pp.177-213. ISSN 1405-9436.
This paper uses the analysis of monetary circulation as a methodological strategy that allows us to show how social worlds fit together to reinforce or to challenge certain gender assessments. In particular, our proposal aims to problematize the boundaries that organize the family's economic life and the political world in the popular sectors. The article is based on an ethnographic description of the life of a woman who lives in a poor neighborhood of the metropolitan area of Buenos Aires, whose everyday life takes place between the obligations that shape her involvement in a local policy network, and as a person in charge of the household economy.
