Abstract

Los programas y proyectos de cooperación al desarrollo dirigidos a promover la igualdad
de género encuentran, con frecuencia, límites que reducen la eficacia de sus objetivos. Entre
esos límites se identifican los que son considerados como barreras culturales y que no
son más que resistencias al cambio cultural en pro de la equidad e igualdad de género. El
análisis sobre las dinámicas de los cambios culturales, a través del análisis de caso en Mozambique,
nos ofrece las claves para identificar los actores y los argumentos que, por un
lado, dinamizan cambios culturales y que, por otro lado, colocan mayores resistencias al
cambio cultural pro-igualdad de género. Así reconocemos cómo las relaciones de poder
que están en la base de la desigualdad de género son, al mismo tiempo, determinantes para
impedir que esa desigualdad se reduzca o desaparezca a través de la acción de proyectos o
programas que son tachados de poca sensibilidad cultural.
ABSTRACT: The development cooperation programs and projects which aim to promote gender equality
frequently face restrictions which reduce the effectiveness in meeting their objectives.
Among these restrictions, we identify several which we regard as cultural barriers; these
are, in fact, resistances towards cultural change for gender equality and equity. The analysis
on cultural change dynamics, through the case study of Mozambique, provides the key
factors to identify the people and the arguments that, on one hand, promote cultural
changes while, on the other hand, offer the strongest resistance to cultural change for gender
equality. Therefore, we recognize that power relations are the basis of gender inequality,
as well as being decisive factors to prevent the reduction of inequality through the action
of programs and projects, which are deemed as having low cultural sensitivity.
