KETTERER-ROMERO, Lucy Mirtha. Raising Awareness: socio-political organizations and practices of women in the south. Convergencia [online]. 2016, vol.23, n.70, pp.227-249. ISSN 2448-5799.

The article presents some results of the research "Policy and women in the Araucania: other possible worlds in times of globalization", analyzing sociopolitical organizations of women in Araucania (Chile). Methodologically, the descriptive qualitative research collects information from fifty organizations. The results make it visible how women gather, organize and act to install worldviews, establishing intercultural relations between Mapuche and non-Mapuche rarely valued by the social sciences. The findings show a complex economic and cultural territory, social relations determined by the presence of Mapuche people, influencing events acquired by the women's movement. Relations of domination, subordination and resistance between cultures configure a colonized territory, cultural affiliations assigned to women are patriarchal, conservative, sexist and influenced by religion, which place them in the private domestic and reproduction space.

Keywords : women; women's organizations; socio-political practices.
