Extraction companies and the political regime that they deal with in Equatorial Guinea rely on genderwashing narratives to justify their actions. Juan Tomás Ávila Laurel, via an aesthetic of gendered oil gluttony, disrupts genderwashing narratives by laying plain how exploitation of women is linked to petrocapitalism. But Ávila Laurel's challenges to petrocapitalism go beyond the content of his writing. Style and form borrowed from oral tradition reinforce the disruptive power of Ávila Laurel's work, as does its strategic distribution in particular countries of the Global North.
