Kinship work and other care work performed by them also constitute a form of female agency. Returning once again to Anzaldúa, on Phone Number List the borders, the women are wounded, but resisting . Here it is important to underline that the social experiences of these women do not constitute a willful work: they do not depend solely on their desire, their conscience or their effective action. Her agency, her ability to act on her social environment, is framed by the structuring Phone Number List of this same context. This implies recognizing that border women effectively act by determining their own history, but through mechanisms that are eminently contradictory: «in the daily production of goods and meanings, they give in and protest, reproduce and seek to transform their situation»13. Crossroad The crisis Phone Number List triggered by the covid-19 pandemic has transformative.
Consequences for mobility Phone Number List across the planet, reorganizing economic circulation, the geopolitics of nation-states, and the role that border areas play in relation to these two elements.

Various countries are using the pandemic Phone Number List circumstance to increase discretionary border violence against citizens from the global South. This centrally concerns the Latin American population, as Jeremy Slack and Josiah explain,USA14. But, in light of everything explained in this text, it is possible to conjecture that these circumstances affect cross-border women differently. For them, this situation implies a profound transformation in their routines and Phone Number List the impossibility of coping with their overloads and caring for their families.
Thus, these global transformations Phone Number List in border regimes have a gender dimension that is not being considered by Latin American countries, given that the centrality of female participation in industrial, commercial, agricultural and care economies at the borders is made invisible. As I have already pointed out, border women in the region are also exposed to the intensification of rates of male violence which, as various studies show, increase when Phone Number List economic difficulties reduce the resources of border families. In the delicate balance of forces between those who are protected and those who are neglected with the current health measures, it would be necessary to compute –at least compute– the crucial role of women and their needs as agents of border mobility. Both the bibliography and my own studies allow us to establish that women who cross borders Phone Number List find innovative ways of circumventing and putting into play the.
