El movimiento nacionalista indio y el papel de las élites en la pérdida de los ideales igualitarios

Alejandra Val Cubero

Resumen


El artículo, a través del modelo histórico genealógico trata de mostrar la participación activa de ciertas mujeres en el movimiento de no violencia de Gandhi y cómo el nacionalismo indio fue un instrumento del que se sirvieron las élites ominantes para alcanzar nuevas cuotas de poder, relegando las propuestas y las peticiones de las incipientes asociaciones de mujeres para conseguir mayores posibilidades de igualdad, ya que cualquier manifestación que no fuera encaminada a la consecución de la independencia era percibida como antinacionalista y por lo tanto, innecesaria.



Abstract

This article, using the historical-genealogical model, is an attempt to show firstly, the intense participation of numerous women in the movement of non-violence fomented by Gandhi and secondly, how Indian nationalism was an instrument used by the dominant elite to increase its power, thereby relegating the proposals and requests of incipient women’s groups to get more egalitarian quotas, because any attempt which was not aimed to obtain independence was perceived as antinationalist and therefore, unnecessary.
