Ed is now a member of the board and Santa has charged him with cleaning out corruption in the Great Santa Corporation. Exiled from the Anathema MC, Brew Darnell escaped the bullet only to face the unforgiving solitude of the road. This report was created for strategic planners, international marketing executives and importexport managers who are concerned with the market for stoppers, caps, lids, capsules for bottles, threaded bungs, bung covers, and seals of base metal in Israel.
Lillian is at times very funny trying to obtain her husbands affections and does the crazies things that will have you laughing out loud. Perhaps subsequent stories in this series will reveal that there is a reason for that, but I found it difficult to accept without at least an allusion to that possibility. Easy-to-follow 10 minute routines using the Pilates exercise ball to enhance your Pilates workout, from the bestselling Lesley Ackland. They were even better this second time around. It is also evident in Carajicomedia , ed. Dorothy S. Part of the popularity of the debate was due to the opportunity it gave participants to display their command of the rhetorical techniques of argumentation, e.
This helps explain the frequent retractions by late medieval Castilian antifeminist writers Torrellas produced two. In his edition of the work, Gonzalez Muela was still puzzled by the retraction see the edition cited in note 2 above, pp. More directly relevant to my discussion are two palinodes, one in prose and one in verse, by Torrellas himself.
Such seeming about-faces are properly understood in the context of a court culture that encouraged display, competition, wordplay, and irony. For a broader European view, see Rubin, Gentile Tales.
I have chosen to quote Torrellas from this accessible edition of medieval Spanish verse debate texts. The most complete and careful edition of the fifteenth-century cancioneros that gathered together the work of Torrellas, Montoro, and some seven hundred other court poets of the second half of the fifteenth century is that of Brian Dutton and Jineen Krogstad, eds. All translations of Spanish poetry into English are my own. Diego de Valera, Tratado en defensa de las virtuosas mujeres , vol. Mario Penna Madrid: Atlas, , pp. The quotation is on p.
Miradas feministas sobre las mexicanas del siglo XX Book 6 editions published in in Spanish and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide. Our position is that the current pattern of male mortality from homicide in Mexico is a gendered health effect , a result of the process through which men and women have been drawn into history and the manner in which they live out and define their gender identity in relation to other people: in intimate relationships, within the family, peer groups, work, and society.
These practices through which we do gender West and Zimmerman also form part of a social structure, and as such are subject to constraints, approvals, and disapprovals, based on dynamic cultural ideas about how men and women should behave; but also in the form of strategies for survival and practices that are aimed at mitigating the hurtful impact of structural inequalities.
Men in Mexico have 6.
Similarly road injuries are in third place for men, but only twelfth for women. While this excess male mortality and morbidity is a product of masculine agency and identity, it is also a form of structural violence—indirect forms of harm exerted by social structures and institutions—enforced on both national and global levels, which carries negative consequences for the health and well-being of men and women.
While the data may show the excess morbidity and mortality suffered by men in Mexico, the root causes of much of the violence suffered by men and women in Mexico is the same: the inequality inherent in global economic institutions, which has become normalized in economic relationships Suchland , We challenge this normalizing effect by discussing how these global social, economic, and gender structures have shaped manhood and masculinity in Mexico.
Our argument is situated within the social and historical context of machismo in Mexico, where we explore how culturally defined male identities that did not depend on accumulating material wealth and symbols of status have been replaced by the hegemonic masculinities that have emerged under neoliberal capitalism.
Evidence of the current context of violence in Mexico is drawn from locally generated research and national government statistics on violence, homicide rates, and organized crime. To date, the debate about how gender and structural violence intersect has centered largely on the forms of homicide that impact upon women, such as intimate partner violence Radford and Russell ; Wright The term femicide— feminicidio in Spanish—is widely used to describe misogynous murders of women by men, viewed as a continuation of the sexual violence generated by imbalances of power between men and women in economic, social, and political spheres Monarrez , Mexico has a history of violence between the powerful and against the powerless, well documented in studies of pre-colonial civilizations, which intensified during the conquest and under colonial rule, and carried through into the war of independence, the revolution, and beyond Krauze In , the Mexican Ministry of Health detailed a rate of seventy-seven homicide deaths per , of population, gradually declining to Criminal and interpersonal violence in Latin America is increasingly linked to socio economic exclusion and structural factors, making this a form of structurally generated gender violence Arteaga Botello and Jimena Valdez ; Baird ; Hume Mies goes on to argue that this change in production relations from one of master and servant to that of capital and wage labor was itself only possible through the use of large-scale violence in the form of sanctions, deprivations, and punishments.
Within this process, extreme forms of exploitation and resulting inequality became the new forms of violence to be seen as the natural order of human society. We argue that the current form of hegemonic masculinity that is a product of a neoliberal political economy exerts violence against both men and women through threats to masculine identity generated by structures of inequality, which breed further forms of violence.
Moreover, structural violence frequently leads to violence in direct interpersonal forms, although the continuum between structural and interpersonal violence is hidden and therefore often overlooked.
Separately, Bourgois and Scheper-Hughes highlight this link in their work in the USA and Brazil, illustrating how everyday violence in the forms of poverty, marginalization, loss of livelihoods, and vulnerability are causal factors in domestic gender-based violence against women, and interpersonal conflict among men Bourgois ; Scheper-Hughes Bourgois directly links late twentieth century restructuring of the global economy with a crisis of working-class patriarchy and gang violence among Latino immigrants in New York to explain why such large numbers of poor men are killing one another.
This empirical work with Hispanic populations reinforces the notion of Parsons that the occupational system is the most important process through which individuals—in this case men—achieve their status, with an absence of opportunities acting as a blockage to manhood Bourgois Recent anthropological research also points to the role of historical events and structures in interpersonal violence Segato , and to the impact of living in psychosocially violent family contexts characterized by extreme poverty, brutality, and social exclusion on the use of extreme forms of interpersonal violence Arizpe These various forms of violence feed each other in a non-linear manner where it becomes impossible to interpret any one in isolation from the other.
In Mexican Spanish, the concept has its origins in a cultural context that represented the hegemonic masculinity of a pre-globalized era.
This was the Mexico of campesinos peasant-farmers , in a time when masculinity was not measured in material or economic terms. A functional hegemonic masculinity stabilizes the structures of dominance in the gender order and is naturalized in the form of the hero—thus its representation in films, ballads, westerns, and thrillers Donaldson It was also a moral identity, embodying the values of the post-revolutionary Mexican republic. At a time when the possession of wealth and fortune were not defining factors in the attainment of masculinity, Mexican machismo was both popular and hegemonic, while its marriage with nationalism naturalized the patriarchal structure of society.
This was also a time when there was pride in being poor, and the stigma of poverty had yet to be felt to undermine the doing of masculinity, making it a hegemonic masculinity accessible to all Arizpe These transitional decades after the World War II saw massive rural—urban migrations within Mexico alongside progressive undermining of traditional social structures.
These dynamics are documented by Lewis who alludes to the impact of political economy on kinship structures and in particular on male lives. More recent discussions of gender violence in Mexico have reiterated this position Chant and Craske , —8; Arteaga Botello and Jimena Valdez Although in the latter part of the twentieth century machismo became denigrated as a lower class identity, the patriarchal practices and gender universals of a sexual division of labor remained strongly entrenched.
Compounded by the Structural Adjustment Programs imposed by international financial institutions in the s under the Washington Consensus, the stigma associated with being poor emerged as urbanization left increasing numbers of campesino families abandoning rural poverty to seek a precarious existence in crowded urban settlements Lewis . Within the social structure of gender, the principal organizing factor is a gender-based allocation of tasks that has become embedded in social practice, forming the basis of social structures of domination and inscribing durable effects on the body, mind, and dispositions that are reproduced through the habitus Bourdieu Bourdieu explains how social structures constrain agency while at the same time symbolic forms of violence are enacted to deal with this.
These dispositions, actions, and subconscious forms of doing gender are subject to conscious acts of social endorsement and chastisement, processes through which men and women learn how to behave in a manner that is appropriate for their gender, at once agentic and a matter of social structuration. The effect of this symbolic domination is violent because it takes the form of emotional and psychological harm including humiliation, anxiety, shame, and guilt.

This invisible form of violence, existing primarily at the household and individual level, is a self-generating form of violence that gives birth to further forms [see Bourdieu , on symbolic violence, 33—42]. The location of symbolic violence is well evidenced when approached from the perspective of masculinities. We further complicate this theory by exploring how the same structures of domination also constrain masculine dispositions and bring symbolic violence upon men in Mexico. They are socially required to adhere to a specific set of gender practices that are structurally determined—the doing of masculine identity through agentic behavior as a learned set of practices within their habitus.
The symbolic power of a gender structure, which consigns women to separate spaces and generates submissive attitudes, obliges men to reinforce their superior position by fulfilling their primary masculine obligation of providing for and protecting the family. Men, therefore, are subject to symbolic forms of violence though the self-harm inherent in achieving masculine identity: the loss of dignity and sense of inadequacy, failure, and humiliation at their inability to conform to a hegemonic ideal.
The violence of patriarchal capitalism over men is compounded through the symbolic power of hegemonic masculinity.
There is an inseparability of the various forms of violence that we trace through the relationship along a continuum and through the ongoing construction and redefinition of masculinities. The diverse manifestations of violence are born of different causal factors, but are interrelated not only through definitional continuums but through the structures of masculinity and gender within patriarchal capitalism, which also legitimize violence within interpersonal relationships.
These structural violences share a common denominator of the ability to cause harm to human integrity, whilst placing the same people in a position of increased vulnerability to physical and life-threatening forms of violence. This gendered labor market dynamic is widely reported in relation to masculinity and violence Arteaga Botello and Jimena Valdez ; Chant and Craske The response has been to seek alternative means of generating income and defining a masculine self. The social disobedience required to construct this power gave its name to the idea of disobedient masculinities Valencia Triana The decades of structural transitions that were a consequence of the global turn towards neoliberalism impacted the doing of Mexican machismo.
As the motor for social change, these economic changes brought a decline in purchasing power of the male wage and structural changes to the gender division of labor. The well-documented rise in femicides over the past two decades speaks both to changing masculinities and femininities that are the result of structural gender dynamics, and a generalized decomposition of the state, reinforced by criminality and its infiltration within the government.
These violent deaths have become an ongoing human rights concern. We argue that the gendered analysis used to explain femicide is equally relevant to understanding male-on-male homicide. So far, the largest burden of mortality from homicide occurs among young men—a phenomenon predominantly studied as a crime statistic and national security issue, with a lack of concomitant gendered analysis.
The hegemonic masculinity of Mexico closely mirrors dominant global models of patriarchy, which are reinforced by globalized cultural forces advertising, commercial pressures, cinema, literature, etc. The naturalization of this form of structural violence is not recent. Inequality has been knitted into the process of global capital accumulation to such an extent that it appears to be part of the natural order of things.
Even in its extreme forms, inequality has come to be seen as a justifiable and a natural attribute of progress and development. In this late period of neoliberal capitalism, the idea that the concentration of wealth in the hands of a few is actually good for humanity because it constitutes the motor for growth has become an accepted economic doctrine Boix ; Piketty The Mexican state struggles to manage even a marginal redistribution of wealth through the taxation system.
The political economy is so riddled with corruption and clientelism that wealth only circulates within a thin slice of the population. Such a system can only exist and operate with governmental complicity, and so it is buffered by an almost absolute state of lawlessness Arteaga Botello and Jimena Valdez ; Gamlin ; Tuckman Corruption is a top-down phenomena and in Mexico high-ranking political figures, including successive presidents, have led by example.
