The Woman Behind the Myth: An Outline of Contemporary Struggles Against Global Corporate Plundering

The article deals with women from the global South who have been confronting inhuman neoliberal corporate plundering for decades. With the mobilization of lawless and excluded social groups, they have been creating new socialities, emergences and potentias in their autonomous and self-determing communities. The purpose of the article is to shed light on some of the topics that are significant for the understanding of the complexity and heterogeneity of contemporary antagonisms but in fact absent from Europocentric academic discussions on counter-hegemonic movements. With the examples of life histories, biographies, testimonies and struggles of three women – Berta Cáceres, Domitila Barrios de Chúngara and Sudha Bharadwaj – new epistemologies and some emerging practices of the counter-hegemonic global South are identified. Through these women‘s life stories, the author shows the impact and message of their struggles against corporate plundering and the lessons we can learn from them.
