Young migrants in the borderlands: femicide in Cd. Juárez and the state discourse and initiatives on female working class, brown citizens in the border.

Bourdieu conceives of the body as the point where culture and social structures are manifested and produced. Bourdieu (1977, 1984) contends that such bodily discourse operates implicitly at subconscious levels to mark the bearer with cultural and social meaning that is constantly and unconsciously communicated. Bourdieu’s work suggests that, not only are peoples’ bodies inscribed with culture, but that the body’s engagement in social and cultural practice also profoundly shapes the individual’s entire disposition and set of tastes that structure behavior, social action and access to resources. Viewed historically, the discipline of the female body is a form of social control and gender oppression. Bodies are shaped by relations of power and how they are implicated in the legitimization of social inequality. The bodies of working class young brown women are used and appropriated by the production forces but such bodies are killed when they are a threat to the sexual politics of the patriarchal society.
