Abstract

A space dedicated to care – as reproductive labor – is undoubtedly the domestic space. However, these tasks can weave networks that surpass the domestic limit, positioning themselves as systems of resistance and community building at the collective and neighborhood scales. The autobiography of María Elena Moyano, Peruvian political activist, gives an account of how care can become a tool of political constitution and social mobilization, reworking and expanding both the domestic scale and its roles in favor of a community.
