La protección social de las familias monoparentales en la ciudad de Bogotá 1991 -2015: una realidad más allá de la ley
Bonilla Rodríguez, Diana
With the passage and the social, political and legal means a constituent assembly, in this case the 91, which gave birth to the constitution of the same year, originated in addition a transition toward a social State based on the rule of law, multi-ethnic and secular, which posed a discourse of diversity and inclusion of the difference in different aspects of social life. However, in the case of the family, this constitution did not represent changes with respect to the discourse structure and functions in society, thus perpetuating the familista discourse, of a single legitimate form of patriarchal: nuclear family, implying a lack of recognition of the family diversity in Colombia and in turn causing a disruption in the care and protection of families not recognized in Colombia.Such is the case of single-parent families, whose structure does not correspond to this ideal of family and thanks to its lack of recognition both legal and social care and social protection by the State, through public institutions of family protection, is biased to the female single parents, as well as stigmatized. Despite this, from 2013, before the current social claims that seek the recognition of the diversity of the family in the country, legal mechanisms have emerged on the part of the constitutional court, as well as new family policies at both national and local levels, who are making their first approaches to what is the family diversity and how to include and protect families. Along the contact with the public institutions of family protection, where they showed new alternatives and advances that although representative, are not yet sufficient, persisting the invisibility both social and legal and social protection biased of single-parent families.
