CARVALHO, Andressa  y  MACEDO, João Paulo. Female insurrections: babassu coconut breakers' resistances. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.3, pp. 77-94. ISSN 2238-152X.

The objective of this study was to reflect on the female coconut breakers from Piauí in their ways of life and fights with the Interstate Movement of Babassu Breakers (MIQCB). It was a cartographic study carried out in three rural communities in Esperantina, where the Piauí regional headquarters of the MIQCB is located. We used as resources the production of life narratives and photographs. Thus, on the one hand, we highlighted the power relations which marked the life trajectories of those women, producing lack of subjectivation; but on the other hand, we show their forms of fights. For this, we use a Foucauldian parresia notion and friendship in its political potential as ways of hostile conducts and resistance and ways of reinventing oneself, contributing to the strengthening of the fight.

Palabras clave : babassu coconut breakers; power relations; resistance; parresia; friendship.
