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
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.
