Region publication is about:
This first volume of "Indigenous Women on the Move" is composed of 9 articles written by indigenous women wherein they have attempted to show their distinct realities in their different areas of the world.
But distinct realities, notwithstanding, and each with their own peculiarities, indigenous women share a common situation, that of being the object of threefold oppression: the oppression by gender which is shared by all women in a fundamentally patriarchal world, the oppression by class experienced by the rural and urban poor, and finally the ethnic oppression directed at a whole people.
Indigenous women react with different emphasis against these different types of oppression and in their articles, they explain how they have manifested themselves, how they have interacted, and spearheaded by themselves, how they have organized, have worked actively, how they have fought, how they have established their presence at all levels, in short, how they have been on the move.
