Many immigrant groups alongside the U.S. border with Mexico are colonias, border settlements missing infrastructure or secure housing. A Jumble of Needs examines the management of Mexican girls immigrants in 3 colonias in New Mexico, documenting the function 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 organisation 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. particularly, the discourses of caretaking that NGOs use to recruit girls into management positions concurrently 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 matters who by chance toughen neoliberal coverage. ultimately, she unearths, any politicization that will happen is restricted to the ladies leaders and rarely contains the group as a whole.
Surprisingly, Dolhinow finds, many NGOs advertise neoliberal beliefs, leading to persevered disenfranchisement, regardless of the women’s activism to higher their lives, households, and communities.
