dc.descriptionA historical study of migratory patterns in central Mexico shows that rural communities have seen shifts in population ratios as well as in the type of activities and responsibilities undertaken by men and women. This has also affected women's use of livestock, particularly the donkey. In this case study from the State of Mexico, the use of donkeys is analysed using PRA methodology. The donkey was found to be appropriate to needs of women and men, but is unlikely to be locally accepted for productive activities such as cultivation or breeding, as it is viewed as an animal reserved for household (reproductive) activities.<p>This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.</p>en
