ROMERO PLANA, Virginia  and  MARTINEZ SANTAMARIA, Luz. Sexual Violence During Fieldwork: Autoethnography in Two Voices. Rev. interdiscip. estud. género Col. Méx. [online]. 2021, vol.7, e717.  Epub June 25, 2021. ISSN 2395-9185.

This article is a feminist and decolonial critical analysis of sexual violence against women studying at university and particularly carrying out field work, as a micro-social aspect of the patriarchal structure and the inequalities suffered by women in our society. Our autoethnographic approach is based on our own experiences of sexual violence; we identify instances of gender violence in field work, and we examine the responses to our complaints and the impact on our lives and academic careers. Considering that universities are unprepared to tackle this problem, our conclusion focuses on the urgent need for a dialogue between educational institutions and feminist voices to recognize and eliminate gender violence.

Keywords : sexual violence; sexual harassment; fieldwork; autoethnography; cultural anthropology; feminist critique.
