Perpetuated in the families that Phone Number List women form. However, particularly in the last two decades, an intensification of the public violence to which women are exposed when inserted in these border economies has been observed. This is due to the consolidation of highly profitable cross- border circuits , which generate benefits by exposing certain Phone Number List social groups to disadvantageous conditions: “They include the illegal trafficking of people destined for the sex industry and various types of work in the formal and informal market. They include cross-border migration, undocumented or not, which has become an important source of foreign exchange for Phone Number List governments.10». The border territories are the areas where these circuits anchor substantial parts of their operations. Which demand the employment of Phone Number List labor in increasingly precarious conditions. Women have more job opportunities than men in these circuits, since it is believed that they are more exploitable (they earn lower wages, work more hours, are kept without employment contracts). Saskia refers to this phenomenon as the "feminization of survival", alluding to the fact that the accelerated capitalism of the 21st century increased the Phone Number List precariousness of women, because they continue to be the main responsible for the reproduction of families. The majority of Latin American border women are the main economic providers of their household and also the main responsible for family care (in all its dimensions). They develop their border economic activities –linked to legal/illegal trade, domestic Phone Number List work, border industries or rural work– precisely to respond to this productive/reproductive family overload. The Paraguayan women I Phone Number List interviewed between 2018 and 2019 on the triple border of Paraná outlined these responsibilities by saying that, on the border, women "carry the family in their bodies." Despite (and because of) this exploitation of women, men feel displaced from their role as economic providers and this culminates in outbreaks of gender-based violence that originate in homes but spread to public spaces. A tragic example of this Phone Number List dynamic is Ciudad Juárez, a Mexican town on the US border where 400 women workers in the maquiladora industries were murdered between 1994 and 2004.eleven. Thus, for many Latin American women, borders constitute a "dialectic of opportunity." There they find the possibility of solving their overloads, but these possibilities imply a picture of violations and violence that are difficult to solve.12. However, the studies agree that women have a very important role in these territories as Phone Number List active agents of resistance and personal, family and community empowerment.
