Statement (600 words limit)
The dissertation "More politicians who are women, more politics for women" has two main objectives. Firstly, to describe women participation in the public sector in Argentina, especially in the legislative branch. In second place, and in relation with the importance of women's access to decision making positions for democracy, we will present the women's empowerment campaign "More Women", started by the NGO "Mujeres Como Vos" -Women Like You-. Its objective is to invite women to make an agenda of public policies from a gender empowerment perspective, from a virtual platform. The commitment we make is to introduce this agenda to the next Argentine President, during the national elections of 2015.
