Abstract


Today, Narco-Culture has transformed many aspects in some society. One
of the aspects still to be explored is linked to studies of gender stereotypes, because very little research has been done on this subject. For this reason, the main objective of this article is to explore how drug trafficking has distorted gender stereotypes, linking this viewpoint as an aggravating factor in situations of conflict and violence in society, taking Colombian society as a reference and yet it could be applied to other countries and contexts. Thus, the premise of
the article is that the Narco-Culture has changed the role of men and women in society. The most significant findings show that the gender perspective provides a holistic view of the phenomenon of violence in society and can therefore help authorities to design effective public policies that break its cycle, Understanding also that society and culture have a great direct and indirect responsibility in the perpetuation of drug trafficking and all manifestations of violence.


Keywords: Narco-culture, gender stereotypes, violence, conflict.


Resumen


Hoy en di?a, la Narco-Cultura ha transformado muchos aspectos en algunas sociedades. Uno de los aspectos au?n por explorar esta? relacionado con
los estudios de los estereotipos de ge?nero, porque se ha hecho muy poca investigacio?n sobre este tema. Por esta razo?n, el objetivo principal de este arti?culo es explorar co?mo el narcotra?fico ha distorsionado los estereotipos de ge?nero, vinculando este punto de vista como un factor agravante en situaciones de conflicto y violencia en la sociedad, tomando como referencia la sociedad colombiana y, sin embargo, podri?a aplicarse a otros pai?ses y contextos. Por lo tanto, la premisa del arti?culo es que la narco-cultura ha cambiado el papel de los hombres y las mujeres en la sociedad. Los hallazgos ma?s significativos muestran que la perspectiva de ge?nero proporciona una visio?n holi?stica del feno?meno de la violencia en la sociedad y por lo tanto puede ayudar a las autoridades a disen?ar poli?ticas pu?blicas efectivas que rompan su ciclo, entendiendo tambie?n que la sociedad y la cultura tienen una gran responsabilidad directa e indirecta en la perpetuacio?n del narcotra?fico y de todas las manifestaciones de la violencia.


Palabras clave: Narco-cultura, estereotipos de ge?nero, violencia, conflicto.
