Abstract
This thesis is based on the two months I spent in Bolivia doing applied cultural analysis for a nongovernmental organization (ECAM) that works for women empowerment and gender equality. My intention is to explore the relationship between academia and activism by focusing on the approaches that have been pointed out as counterproductive in the struggle for gender equality. Specifically, the objective of this thesis is to analyze and illuminate the ways in which theoretical perspectives can contribute to the type of practical work that ECAM is undertaking. In order to answer this question I will use the research project I conducted at the NGO to develop specific recommendations for the organization.
