L’agro-écologie au Brésil, un instrument genré de luttes sociales

Abstract : From the analysis of struggles for land, for agroecology and for the recognition of productive and reproductive work of rural women, we show how agroecology is thought as a movement of gender identities construction and as a precious instrument of struggle, social and feminist struggle. The analysis is based on a chronology and on the trajectory of peasants of a symbolic assentamento of resistance, the assentamento Maceió, in the Ceará, northeast of Brazil. The crossing between agroecology and feminist practices helps make visible the ongoing negotiation process of women challenging the assigned gender roles and the invisibility of their productive and political commitment. Between reassignment and emancipatory potential, agroecology reveals to be an instrument for local changes and for the social group of women practicing it.
