We attend a progressive marginalization of Mongolian women since ancient times in which they developed central social roles, such as shamanic activities, until the twentieth century that tried to make them “housewives” of a new urban sedentary society. But the contradictions and shortcomings of modernity in Mongolia have opened up unexpected opportunities for empowerment for women in this culture today. Lecture by Miguel Peyró, doctor in Philology and specialist in linguistic anthropology of the nomadic peoples of Central Asia. Free admission prior registration here.
