The article analyses the exploitation of elastic rubber in Bolivian Amazonia (1880-1920), which played a crucial role in the definitive colonisation of the eastern part of the country. The goal of the paper is to describe the diverse roles women played in the several stages and contexts of rubber extraction, aiming at documenting the operation of the extractive machinery from a female point of view and also to reconstruct the historical agency of the Creole, Indigenous and European women left out of the historical sources by the hyper￾masculinising bias of Amazonian history.

Abstract

The article analyses the exploitation of elastic rubber in Bolivian Amazonia (1880-1920), which played a crucial role in the definitive colonisation of the eastern part of the country. The goal of the paper is to describe the diverse roles women played in the several stages and contexts of rubber extraction, aiming at documenting the operation of the extractive machinery from a female point of view and also to reconstruct the historical agency of the Creole, Indigenous and European women left out of the historical sources by the hyper￾masculinising bias of Amazonian history.
