Abstract | Full Text

This paper analyzes, from a gender perspective, the dispossession of lands from the Cedros ejido, where the Peñasquito mine is located, property of Gold Corp Inc. This company makes use of the land in open air mining (strip mining). The information, collected through interviews with the local people, shows inequalities between men and women with regard to access to land ownership, decision making, and negotiations. It shows that women have to directly face the problems inherent to mining.
