KLEIN, Alejandro  y  VAZQUEZ-FLORES, Erika. Gender's roles of some indigenous mexican women from the migration and generational processes. J. behav. health soc. ISSUES [online]. 2013, vol.5, n.1, pp.25-39. ISSN 2007-0780.

This article reviews different conceptual perspectives about how disrupt and reconfigure the roles of indigenous women who migrate to cities of Mexico. Some of the authors analyzed, agree that migration not only affects women directly involved, but also to those who without leaving their territorial space, such as spouses, children and families in general, reconfigure their gender roles and thus the power relations change among those affected. The proposed revision suggests that while there are changes in female subjectivity, further relates to processes of empowerment, yet simultaneously there is reinforce of subordination and patriarchal control. This situation suggests the need to consider different contexts, as well as placing the extreme complexity of the subject. For our part, would not rule out a third option, in relation to situations of ambiguity or compromise between the two factors, which indicates the existence of variables in processes of transition and change. Most of the review of the paper are based on the gender studies, but the review also try to incorporate a multidisciplinary approach that allows us a more fully understand of this phenomenon, so broad and complex, incorporating gender studies, but also approaches from psychoanalytic, psychological, cultural, migration and sociological perspectives.
