Abstract | Full Text

This work documents and recovers women testimony that remains in their community as well as those that cross the border to the United States. Those who go out face challenge, and can find opportunities that can transform situations and those women that remain at home experiment changes due precisely to the new responsibilities. It´s analyze the net as the mechanism that make possible the continuity of the migratory process. We ask ourselves: ¿what perception they have about the migratory process, how they live it, how they face the difficulties to adapt to the new life conditions, where they work, how the organize their time, what they expect about the return of those who leave and what they expect for those couples which remains in the community? In both cases we will see what happen with the relationship of couple and children.
