Continued struggle for survival: how Plan Jefes y Jefas affected poor women's lives in Greater Buenos Aires, 2002-2005
Garzon de la Roza, Gisela
This thesis examines the micro-social effects of the main emergency policy implemented in Argentina in 2002 -the Plan Jefes y Jefas- on its female beneficiaries. The main finding is that while the program reproduced contemporary limited social planning, its community centers also provided a unique opportunity for poor women's access to contexts of socialization and reciprocity. This marked a before-and-after point in their lives, allowing for potential changes in their lives.
