Alternate Paths to Power, Dr. Hinojosa ~ WMST speaker series ~ Thurs 23rd 12:30pm

The Women and Gender Studies Speaker Series – Global Studies in Gender and Sexuality invites you to attend:

Alternate Paths to Power:

Women’s Political Representation in Latin America

 

Dr. Magda Hinojosa

Assistant Professor, School of Politics and Global Studies, Arizona State University

 

Thursday, February 23rd

12:30 pm

Gates Woodruff Cottage

 

Political alternate positions are included in the electoral systems of countries all over the world. This talk explores their potential as a path to power for women. It assesses whether these positions are being used to increase women’s political representation or as a tool to undermine women’s advancement into positions of power. Using the cases of Mexico and Nicaragua, Dr. Hinojosa examines patterns of women’s representation as candidates and elected office holders (as both alternates and titleholder) in order to analyze the ways in which various political parties are utilizing these alternate positions.

 

Co-Sponsored by the Women and Gender Studies Program, the Latin American Studies Center and the Department of Political Science.
