Young migrants in the borderlands: femicide in Cd. Jurez and the state discourse and initiatives on female working class, brown citizens in the border.
Unformatted Document Text:  25 expression of patriarchy. This conception of public outdoor space combined with women’s sense of physical vulnerability to men has provided with the foundation of women’s fear of violence in the outdoors. Such perception allows women to be blamed and held responsible for being in inappropriate places, acts as a warning to other women when something happens to a woman who does not heed the societal message, and perpetuates a sexualized social representation of outdoor settings. The outcome seems to construct women involved in outdoor recreation as "the other" (de Beauvoir, 1975) where they are defined relative to men, not themselves, with little sense of autonomy. Other research, however, has found that some women reject this constraint of a socially defined conception of the outdoors and assert their right to belong in that environment. These discussions of resistance to constraints of violence would support the new cultural geographies that suggest sexuality and gender must be considered as we find people beginning to re-define place in terms of their own negotiations of constraints. Gender and sexuality are key to cultural constructs in the social construction of space. As Zulma Mendez stated to me: “ Operadora meant women who go out, earn money, go to dance to [dancing halls] the “Malibu,” or to the “Afro bar,” “El Barco” and have certain independence. I think there has been a misunderstanding of the free time and spaces for leisure. If you look at Juarez, there is absolutely nothing for working women.

expression of patriarchy. This conception of public outdoor space combined with
women’s sense of physical vulnerability to men has provided with the foundation of
women’s fear of violence in the outdoors. Such perception allows women to be blamed
and held responsible for being in inappropriate places, acts as a warning to other women
when something happens to a woman who does not heed the societal message, and
perpetuates a sexualized social representation of outdoor settings. The outcome seems
to construct women involved in outdoor recreation as "the other" (de Beauvoir, 1975)
where they are defined relative to men, not themselves, with little sense of autonomy.
Other research, however, has found that some women reject this constraint of a socially
defined conception of the outdoors and assert their right to belong in that environment.
These discussions of resistance to constraints of violence would support the new cultural
geographies that suggest sexuality and gender must be considered as we find people
beginning to re-define place in terms of their own negotiations of constraints.
Gender and sexuality are key to cultural constructs in the social construction of space.
