¿La mentoría para mujeres jóvenes introduce la perspectiva feminista? Una revisión sistemática exploratoria

Mireia Foradada Villar, Josefina Sala Roca


Aunque la mentoría para jóvenes en riesgo de exclusión social es una estrategia de intervención educativa muy extendida, poco se ha investigado sobre la mentoría para mujeres jóvenes que persigue la erradicación de las desigualdades de género. A través de una revisión sistemática exploratoria se ha examinado la literatura científica existente sobre mentoría para mujeres jóvenes. Se recopilaron 1.256 estudios de 6 bases de datos especializadas, de los que se seleccionaron 21 trabajos que fueron analizados en profundidad, tres de los cuales se autodefinen como mentorías feministas (femtoring). El análisis ha permitido identificar las principales características de los programas de mentoría para mujeres jóvenes y las implicaciones de la perspectiva feminista en el ámbito socioeducativo. Asimismo, se ofrecen herramientas reflexivas sobre los procesos de empoderamiento que se desprenden de los programas sobre mentoría de aproximación feminista.
