  • Latin America's turn away from neoliberalism and adoption of decolonising alternatives to devel-opment has been spearheaded—nowhere more so than Bolivia—by indigenous movements. The gender ideology of chachawarmi is part of this decolonisation
  • programme, but has been criticised for disguising gendered exploitation. These tensions are explored by looking at, in Escobar's words, ‘the concrete struggles within particular communities’. Based on long-term research in rural Bolivia (inter-Andean valley

  • Columbus ; Communication ; Division of labour ; Gender ; Homeworking ; Household ; Internet ; Ohio ; Social geography ; United States of America
