Engendering Economic Anthropology

Women's Place in the Andes

Economic anthropologists have been slow to take advantage of the scholarship on gender relations in society. Although there have been some positive developments in the direction of incorporating gender analysis in research in economic anthropology, the mainstream of the subdiscipline has rarely appreciated the significance of gender as a primary category of analysis. Following a general discussion, this chapter draws on research on the informal economic sector in the Peruvian Andes to argue that studies are incomplete and often distorted when they disregard gender and that they are enriched to the degree that they examine the differential experiences of women and men in the society and the economy.
