Abstract and Keywords

This chapter considers globalization and its relationship to women's bodies in Latin America, both the effects this new face of capitalism is having on women's bodies in this part of the world and the ways in which women construct modalities as creative resistance strategies. It goes beyond a mere analysis of the socioeconomic impact in a variety of situations to examine what women invent, represent, and endow with power in their discourse, practices, and collective quest to redefine the status of all women, and particularly of women excluded from the so-called global economic system.

Keywords: globalization, women's bodies, Latin America, capitalism
