VELOZ CONTRERAS, Areli. Purépechas Women in the Maquiladoras of Tijuana: Between Flexibility and Meaning of Work. Frontera norte [online]. 2010, vol.22, n.44, pp.211-236. ISSN 2594-0260.

This article discusses the work experiences of Purépecha women in Tijuana. It puts emphasis on the maquiladora women's work to understand its given meaning in a context of flexible forms of industrial work that leads to changes in perceptions of the work itself. It also mentions the ambiguity of the maquiladora inclusion as a positive part in the meaning of work and the continuity of social inequality originated in gender, ethnic and migratory issues.

Keywords : Flexibility of work; experiences; meanings of work; Arantepacua; Tijuana.
