           drogodependencias con mujeres jóvenes.

    • Authors: rosario pozo gordaliza, CARMEN ORTE, MARGA VIVES
      Pages: 859 - 886
      Abstract: Recientemente a nivel internacional se ha incrementado el interés en la identificación de prácticas efectivas que contemplen las necesidades particulares de las niñas o jóvenes, precisamente motivado por el abuso de sustancias tóxicas y sus “altos” contactos con Justicia juvenil y de adultos. La literatura revisada revela que en general son muy escasos los programas específicos para chicas en materia de prevención de  drogodependencias. Además son también pocos los que han publicado sus resultados desagregados por sexo. Por lo que la necesidad de estudio y de evaluación son tremendamente necesarios para poder dar una respuesta adecuada a sus necesidades.  Por todo ello, este artículo revisa y analiza los distintos discursos entorno a los factores de éxito y riesgo al igual que los programas específicos en prevención de drogodependencias (y residenciales) con chicas o mujeres jóvenes.ABSTRACT:Recently at the international level has been increased interest in identifying effective practices that address the particular needs of girls, motivated precisely by the Substance Abuse and "high" contacts with youth and adults Justice. The literature review reveals that in general there are very few specific programs for girls in the prevention of drug addiction. In addition are also very few who have published their results disaggregated by sex. So the need for study and evaluation are extremely necessary to provide an adequate response to their needs. Therefore, this paper reviews and analyzes the different discourses around the success and risk factors as well as the specific programs in drug prevention (and residential) with girls or young women.Keywords: young offenders, preventive programs, residential drug addiction

  • Peace in Colombia is also a women's issue

    • Authors: Maria Eugenia Ibarra Melo
      Pages: 887 - 910
      Abstract: In this article, we show the ambiguous relationship between the Colombian state and civil organizations in an analysis that examines the motives, methods, and form in which women's organizations that have mobilized for peace in Colombia have benefited from the structure of political opportunities during the two-term government terms of democratic security (2002-2010). For this purpose, it was very important to follow the press and the means of information diffusion on the Web by the women's organizations, interviews with leaders, and what accompanied their actions over more than 10 years. The main conclusion drawn from this work is the identification of new methods of leadership that have structured activism around peace and human rights, thus contributing to the emergence of a new political actor and the transformation of the political culture of Colombia.

  • Bangladeshi Women Trafficking Survivors Situation in Family and Society:
           NGO Response towards Their Reintegration

    • Authors: Sabiha Yeasmin Rosy
      Pages: 911 - 928
      Abstract: Trafficking is a wide spread business that not only violates women and children’s human rights but also push them towards a vulnerable state with no protection of life. This paper aims to focus on the perception behind the reintegration process of trafficking survivors, who has returned from India to their families and communities in Bangladesh. In doing so, this research helps to understand the perception of survivors in their reintegration along with the perceptions of community people and family members. This study also brings forth in discussion how their life has been changed and their acceptance in society has been denied. This research was carried out with the help of BNWLA and it intends to find out what BNWLA is doing to reduce those challenges. The study findings show that reintegration of survivors is challenging. Different NGOs and government are working to change people’s mind about the reintegration of survivors and provide facilities to the survivors to get empowered. This study recommends increasing the awareness among people about survivors’ reintegration.

  • Women’s Studies as Virus: Institutional Feminism, Affect, and the
           Projection of Danger.

    • Authors: Breanne Fahs, Michael Karger
      Pages: 929 - 957
      Abstract: Because women’s studies radically challenges social hierarchies and lacks a unified identity and canon of thought, it often negotiates a precarious position within the modern corporatized university.  At the same time, women’s studies offers—by virtue of its interdisciplinary, critical, and “infectious” structure—cutting-edge perspectives and goals that set it apart from more traditional fields.  This paper theorizes that one future pedagogical priority of women’s studies is to train students not only to master a body of knowledge but also to serve as symbolic “viruses” that infect, unsettle, and disrupt traditional and entrenched fields.  In this essay, we first posit how the metaphor of the virus in part exemplifies an ideal feminist pedagogy, and we then investigate how both women’s studies and the spread of actual viruses (e.g., Ebola, HIV) produce similar kinds of emotional responses in others.  By looking at triviality, mockery, panic, and anger that women’s studies as a field elicits, we conclude by outlining the stakes of framing women’s studies as an infectious, insurrectional, and potentially dangerous, field of study.  In doing so, we frame two new priorities for women’s studies—training male students as viruses and embracing “negative” stereotypes of feminist professors—as important future directions for the potentially liberatory aspects of the field.
