Abstract

This paper deals with epistemological and methodological complexities in gender studies, when applied to the social movements of indigenous and peasant women in rural Mexico. Their problems, actions, achievements, projects and utopia, allow the appropriation and redefinition of concepts from local and diverse scenarios. In this manner concepts such as gender, subordination, submission, the visibility and invisibility of women, public and private spaces, as well as changes in women related to them, are conceived by indigenous and peasant women from the particular and go beyond a circumscribed universal interpretation, giving a diverse connotation to related concepts in this field of studies
