Citizenship insurgent of neighborhoods women in Venezuela: reflections on the Community Councils and the Social Battle Rooms

This article aims to analyze certain characteristics of the Venezuelan democratic transformation during the Presidency of Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías, particularly from 2002 onwards and with a specific focus on the emergence of barrio women in the new participatory structures. There will be particular attention to the mechanisms enhancing local political participation and social inclusion through the Community Councils (Consejos Comunales) and the Social Battle Rooms (Salas de Batalla Social). Within these instances barrio women had increasingly discovered their own space for individual and collective empowerment. barrio women’s participation in such instances frames a process of gender equality based in scale complementarity in which the structures of macro-politics more dominated by men, while those of micro-politics are generally subjugated by barrio women. In this study barrio women’s instances of micro-politics will be conceptualized in terms of insurgent citizenship. The article connects thus to theoretical debates on radical participatory democracy, State-society relations, and the empowerment of barrio women that previously were excluded from the public sphere.

Abstract [es]

El objetivo del presente artículo es analizar algunas características de la transformación de la democracia venezolana en tiempos de la administración del Presidente Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías, particularmente a partir de 2002 y con un enfoque específico del surgimiento de mujeres en las nuevas estructuras participativas. Habrá un enfoque particular en los mecanismos para animar a la participación política vecinal e inclusión social, a través de instancias como Consejos Comunales y las Salas de Batalla Social. Dentro de estas instancias una creciente cantidad de mujeres de barrios populares han encontrado su espacio propio de empoderamiento individual y colectivo. El articulo sostiene que lo que está sucediendo incidentalmente con el proceso bolivariano es una complementariedad entre las estructuras de la macro-política, más dominadas por los hombres, y las micro-políticas más dominadas por las mujeres en estas instancias y que pueden problematizarse en términos de ciudadanía insurgente. El estudio se vincula asi con los debates teóricos de democracia radical y participativa, relaciones Estado-ciudadanía y el empoderamiento de las mujeres de barrios que anteriormente estaban excluidas de las esferas públicas.
