Oaxaca 2006: Women's Resistance poster
by anonymous and Just Seeds
In 2006, an uprising in Oaxaca, Mexico against the repressive neoliberal regime of governor Ulises Ruiz occupied the state capital for 6 months. Women played a key role maintaining barricade and spontaneously organizing militant mass actions such as occupations of TV and radio stations. Oppressive gender roles shifted as Oaxacan women self-organized in the face of state and parliamentary violence, rape, and opposition from male-dominated spheres of the movement. These revolutionaries unleashed a powerful process of personal and collective transformation that threatened the foundations of their oppression within the household, the state, and the global economy.
