Abstract:

The general objective of this paper is to analyze the contradictory cultural repercussions of the feminization of the labor force in the racialized and gendered socio-economic dynamics that take place in Cd. Juárez . This paper explores the ways in which sexist violence, social structures, and gendered patterns of domination are constructed, disguised, reinforced and disseminated in the official discourse of the neo-liberal state, particularly in regard to the killing of working class, brown young women. We are specifically interested in understanding the struggles of identity politics and representational tensions that occur in the construction of brown working-class young women by the state and different sectors of the border city of Cd. Juárez. This paper focuses on a specific kind violence against working class women in Cd. Juárez and some of the ways in which the State and other social forces have responded to the femicide that is taking place in the border. Using qualitative research methods, this paper explores questions of gender representation and resistance. Theoretical frameworks from cultural studies and feminist theory in addition to foundations provided by communication studies.
