A gender perspective for mining - women's testimonies from Latin America

Mining is promoted as an activity that can help in the fight against poverty. Despite evidence that indigenous women represent the poorest among the poor in the region, so far nobody has studied and provided examples of how they benefit from mining nor its impact on reproducing and reinforcing gender stereotypes. LAMMP is in a position to do so.
