Abstract

RODRIGUEZ SALAMANCA, Victoria Alejandra. COEDUCATION: AN APPROACH TO A FEMINIST EPISTEMOLOGY IN THE CLASROOM. La ventana [online]. 2020, vol.6, n.51, pp.32-52.  Epub Sep 16, 2020. ISSN 1405-9436.  https://doi.org/10.32870/lv.v6i51.7073.

This text is a part of an investigation that I made in Ibagué city (Colombia) about education based in gender perspective and feminism. In this education system a program with gender perspective available to schools doesn’t exist, therefore, speaking of coeducation implies taking into account that culture is permeated by sexist practices. This is based in religious, economic and other ideas, also by the epistemic and scientific bases of the education system. Therefore, the views expressed in this article have an appropiate context, in the sense that, in the social level, the implementation of programs with this perspective is necessary, and implies, on the other hand, proposing a new epistemology from feminism about topics in the curricula: fundamentally, the body, sexuality, cultural, ethnical and gender diversity, women visibility in science, economy, amongst others.

In the educational system of Ibagué, the word coeducation doesn’t exist, or any other that includes a gender perspective education. In this article perceptions from the theachers that are trying to build a gender perspective about education were collected, as well as analyze the main challenges to include this epistemic perspective in the educational system curricula. Likewise, is was possible to visualize the challenges that they have had to face, at a personal, family, work and social level to introduce this perspective.

Keywords : gender; coeducation; feminist epistemology.
