Abstract

Reviews how gentrification in Tijuana has affected three marginal groups of working women : prostitutes, factory workers in maquiladoras, and street vendors. Author also weighs the gendered representations of women in Tijuana and of the city. Each group of women has appropriated public spaces within the city for itself ; however, they remain marginal in a patriarchal society. - (SLD)
