Resumen: The aim of the article is to analyze how Mexican women activists’ emotions are constructed by gender and sociocultural context. The theory of action applied in this paper is based on understanding emotions as sociocultural constructs (Hochschild, 1979, 1983) and on applying different typologies that have proven very useful when analyzing the various emotions that activists come to feel (Jasper, 2018). Along the article, we will discuss how Mexican female activists shape their moral emotion, such as fear, pain and anger, and some emotion work strategies used by women activists to manage these emotions; showing how these emotions interact with affective commitments, such as love, sisterhood, and trust. We will conclude discussing some patterns we are observing in the change in the emotional culture of the new generation of activists which are breaking some gender feeling rule.
