This book discusses the current tendencies in women's representation and their role in politics in Latin American countries from three different perspectives. Firstly, the authors examine cultural, political-partisan and organizational obstacles that women face in and outside institutions. Secondly, the book explores barriers in political reality, such as gender legislation implementation, public administration and international cooperation, and proposes solutions, supported by successful experiences, emphasising the nonlinearity of the implementation process. Thirdly, the authors highlight the role of women in politics at the subnational level. The book combines academic expertise in various disciplines with contributions from practitioners within national and international institutions to broaden the reader's understanding of women in Latin American politics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book leverages rigorous research to develop a series of policy proposals for expanding and deepening women's involvement in Latin American democracies. The book is accessible to a broad audience including political science students, activists, and practitioners. ... As such, Women, Politics, and Democracy in Latin America will serve as a springboard for future research on women's political empowerment and a resource for cultivating formal and informal strategies for institutionalising women's access to political power." (Tiffany D. Barnes, Gender & Development, Vol. 25 (3), November, 2017)
