Resumen

ALCANTARA NIEVES, Nehiby  y  HERNANDEZ MORENO, María del Carmen. Democracy and autonomy in female-based social organizations in southern Sonora: the Cobanaras Federation case. Región y sociedad [online]. 2018, vol.30, n.72, 00001. ISSN 1870-3925.  https://doi.org/10.22198/rys.2018.72.a838.

This article describes the links established by a socially based organization among its members and with external actors by means of a typology that conceptualizes such links as clientelist-corporate, neoliberal and democratic-participative, each one related to specific internal practices of autonomy and democracy. The working hypothesis is that tension among these links has an influence on a social organization’s structure and processes, conditioning their continuity and consolidation. In order to test it, a qualitative study was conducted based on the systematization of the genealogy, morphology and dynamics of Cobanaras Federation, a female-based organization in southern Sonora. Among the results, it should be highlighted that, as a survival strategy, interactions of this group are materialized in a tense combination among the three types of disputing links, with a greater emphasis on neoliberal ones, as an external pressure, than on democratic-participative ones, as an expression of internal resistance.

Palabras llave : autonomy; democracy; social organizations, women; neoliberalism; Sonora.
