Resumen

TAPIA LADINO, Marcela  y  GONZALVEZ TORRALBO, Herminia. I’M OFF TO WORK IN SPAIN: COLOMBIAN MIGRATING FAMILIES, ECONOMIC REMITTANCES, AND GENDER RELATIONS IN A TRANSNATIONAL CONTEXT. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2013, vol.45, n.2, pp.333-347. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562013000200009.

Based on a multi-sited ethnographic study of Colombian migrant families, the authors examine the transformations and continuities of gender relations and practices, as a result of the impact of remittances, in a transnational context. Family typologies are an important element in determining this impact because improvements in self-esteem, as well as satisfaction regarding achievements, are more commonly found in single-parent families with female heads. Even if remittances do not altergender relations, they do have impacts on families’ appreciation of migrant women, and especially on how they conceive of themselves.

Palabras clave : Migrant families; transnationalism; remittances; gender; Colombians.
