We can hardly speak of democracy without touching on the issue of economic freedom. Even more so, when the conversation revolves around women and political participation.

We’ve invited women from different sectors to share their personal experience, regarding gender lens investment and its role on advancing respect for human rights, defending against authoritarianism and addressing and fighting corruption.

So, where is Mexico in terms of economic and political participation of women? How does the country’s situation compare to other regions? Why does investing in women strengthen democracy? What is the role of women’s access to finance in building a more just, equal and resilient society?

These and more questions will guide our conversation. Ideas, thoughts or suggested questions are welcome! Please send them to: [email protected]
