BARRIENTOS, Melchor  y  BETANCUR, Cristopher. Ruth Behar and Deborah A. Gordon, eds., Women Writing Culture , Berkeley: University of California Press, 1995. Cult.-hombre-soc. [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.2, pp.315-349. ISSN 0716-1557.

An interpretation in Spanish of the introduction of the book Women Writing Culture is presented. In this introductory chapter titled “Out of exile” in its original version, Ruth Behar, its author, contextualizes through stories and experiences the constant struggle of the woman anthropologists to be recognized in the academic field, in which they have been invisibilized by their male fellows. In this context “Women Writing Culture” is born as a response to the non-existent participation of women anthropologists in the “Writing Culture” project (written by male anthropologists). Women Writing Culture incorporates the point of view of those that have been marginalized, and that have had to remain in the shadows of men throughout the historical development of the discipline.

In the introduction there are glimpses of how throughout the text- by experimenting with differents forms of writing- it seeks to demonstrate the ability of women to generate anthropological writing, freeing them from the constant scrutiny of their male colleagues and mentors, who have considered them the “soft” side of the discipline, unable to perform a feminist and at the same time innovative work.
