Women, Citizenship and Revolution in Venezuela
In this article Noguera studies how women of different classes and places engage in political activity and citizen activism since the onset of the so called "Bolivarian Revolution" in Venezuela. Politics is broadly conceptualized to encompass not only formal political behavior (voting, holding elected office), but also diverse social movements and citizen activism, protest, and other forms of inducing or resisting changes. Methods of research are diverse and include archival analysis and interviews. The author emphasizes extensive interviews with more than 70 women and participant observation with the women discussed.
