Industrial Stagnation and women's survival at the Siglo XX and Uncía Mines (1979)


Women who are spouses or companions of miners are under-recognised for their contributions to miner's livelihoods, both politically and economically. Nowhere has this been more apparent than in the violence-prone, state-owned mines of Bolivia, where the women of the camps have militated actively in their housewives unions, achieving national prominence.
