Transversalización de género: un acercamiento al caso de Colombia y una propuesta interseccional.
Gender Mainstreaming: An Approach to the Colombian Case and an Intersectional Proposal
Yira Isabel Miranda Montero
Summary, in English
Based on the personal and professional stories of 30 women, this article presents the results of a pioneering research on gender mainstreaming in Colombia. The objective is to understand it in three different areas: the academia, the NGO sector, and the government, in order to analyze the intersectional resistance as a way to achieve structural changes against the multiple oppressions experienced in the country. The qualitative methodology is based on 30 semi-structured interviews conducted in Colombia between 2017-2018, and the analysis of public policy documents. The results presented in this article are divided into three sections that explain the current understanding of gender mainstreaming, the differential approaches on which its implementation was based, and the proposals made by the participating women regarding intersectionality as a way to achieve structural changes.
