Across the Americas, extractive industries' water usage often brings them into prolonged conflicts with local communities, who mobilize to resist the initiation and/or expansion of extractive activities that they view as threatening their health, ways of life, and of their families and communities' territories. This talk focuses on different forms of gendered resistance. Through two comparative case studies from West Virginia, USA and Cuenca, Ecuador, I explore how the waterscapes of communities across the Americas, impacted by extractive industries, are embodied by women and how these, in turn consitute and shape women's resistance practices.
