A Jumble of Needs examines the management of Mexican girls immigrants in 3 colonias in New Mexico, documenting the position of NGOs in shaping women’s activism in those groups. Ethnographer Rebecca Dolhinow, who labored within the colonias, uncovers why such makes an attempt to workout political corporation are so hardly successful.
Central to the connection among NGOs and girls activists in colonias, Dolhinow argues, is the looming presence of the neoliberal political undertaking. specifically, the discourses of caretaking that NGOs use to recruit girls into management positions at the same time naturalize and depoliticize the activist paintings that those girls do of their groups. Dolhinow discovers the connections among colonias as remoted groups and colonia leaders as political topics who accidentally strengthen neoliberal coverage. in the end, she reveals, any politicization that will ensue is restricted to the ladies leaders and infrequently comprises the group as a whole.
Surprisingly, Dolhinow unearths, many NGOs advertise neoliberal beliefs, leading to persisted disenfranchisement, regardless of the women’s activism to higher their lives, households, and communities.
