Project: "Feminist periphery: women in collective action collective action (re)constructing themselves from the territory"

This project analyzes the political stance of peripheral feminism, using gender as an analytical category and territory as a transversal dimension. The research consists of the analysis of empirical evidence obtained from November 2022 to July 2023 in 10 municipalities at Greater Mexico City, by in-depth interviews conducted with 18 women who are part of feminist collectives self-identified as peripheral feminist. The study is carried out from gender studies, applying feminist epistemology, and integrates some theoretical notions of human geography and political science. In addition, the concepts of aspiration and anticipation are explored in depth, recognizing the transformative potential of local feminist collective action. In this way, it aims to deepen the potential of feminist collective action in the Mexican periphery, both to question the political subject of feminism of the future and to challenge what it means to be a woman in the periphery in the long term.
