GRIPS Forum “Mexican Agenda for Gender Equity”
At GRIPS Forum on 26 October, 2020, Her Excellency Ms. Melba María PRÍA Olavarrieta, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United Mexican States, gave a lecture titled “Mexican Agenda for Gender Equity”.
Gender equality in Mexico separates two different dimensions: formal equality and substantial equality. In the first concept, Mexico has made significant progress in recognizing constitutional and legal rights for women. In the second place, there is still homework to do because a substantial condition goes beyond the State action and demands a socioeconomic behavior from the community.
In this presentation we will review the constitutional reforms on gender parity, the public policies to make this possible and the feminist foreign policy of Mexico. With this we attempt to overview the Mexican Agenda for Gender Equity.
