Argentina-2019 Commitments

Participation: Argentina pledges to enforce and implement the Gender Parity Law in political representation, passed on November 17, 2017 (Law 27,412). This Act will be applied for the first time in the next general elections in October 2019.

Monitoring: The National Institute of Women (INAM) will monitor compliance of the Parity Law and plans to create an Observatory on Women’s Political Participation, which will provide monitoring of compliance with the new law.

  • INAM no longer exists, and was replaced with the Ministry of Women, Genders, and Diversity. A meeting for the working group (federal table/mesa federal) for gender parity and against political violence was held on 21 August 2020

In the national reporting on Beijing+25, Argentina included annexes on femicide and ending violence against women.
