Abstract/Description

Abstract

This study in progress seeks to examine why Uruguay, which is one of the least gender-bias nations in the Latin America, has low levels of women in parliamentary office? Specifically, this research attempts to unveil whether, and if so what, mechanisms exist to promote the parliamentary participation of women. It also investigates how effective these mechanisms are in empowering young women to transition from youth political involvement to a political career as adults. The study employs a qualitative method, relying on elite interviews with Uruguayan Parliamentarians to examine the case.
