After detecting mechanisms for the participation and social rise of diverse origin women in Panamá Viejo, we aim to explore the development and evolution of the identified strategies, not only at this scene but also at other strategic areas of the Early Modern period. A micro and compared approach is used regarding key questions such as food and supply, women migration, prostitution, health management, witch purge or the access to training and economic resources. In order to maximize the research's scope, as well as the potential sinergies and transfers, thematic comparisons between different urban environments of the Early Modern globalization and, at the same time, through case studies linked to the present globalization. On the one hand, the project aims to polish the historical analysis in question, and, on the other hand, aims to explore its relevance in other geographical fields/scenarios and nowadays.
