English abstract Emerging from an urgent sense of the importance of dislocating universalist narratives about the international, this Special Issue of Contexto Internacional, titled Gender in the Global South: Disturbing International Boundaries, opens the discussion on the state of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies from a global South perspective. The collection of essays gathered in this first of three parts of the Special Issue offers intricate and complementary reflections on the ways bodies marked by gendered categories manage to exist, to move, to resist and to survive in spite of structures that try to pin them down, silence their voices, erase their existence. By means of narrative, conceptual, political and ethnological meditations, they show how these bodies insist to re-exist (Walsh 2013) despite the multifarious structures of power that render their lives both possible and impossible
