Contesting the Transformation: Gender, Sexuality, and the Latin American Left, Duke University Press, New York
Autoras: Tabbush, Constanza
Resumen: The beginning of the twenty-first century promised a profound transformation in Latin American politics. By 2005, the vast majority of the region’s citizens were governed by states whose executives, if not legislatures, identified as being on the left of the political spectrum. Whether inspired by socialist, social democratic, liberal, decolonial, or other ideologies, they sought to challenge social, political and economic inequalities. More than a decade later, with the so-called “Pink Tide” of left-leaning governments ebbing, it is time to take stock. This collection offers a central, yet largely ignored, contribution: a comparative assessment of the Pink Tide’s engagement with feminist, women’s, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) movements and demands. Focusing on nine national cases - Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela ? the fifteen authors of this volume map, lift up, and contest the contemporary Left’s transformation of gender- and sexuality-based rights through the state. Beyond “an impact of left governance” approach, this book shows how gender relations and sexuality have been fundamental to the political projects of the Latin American Left.
