Resumen

MARTINEZ OSSA, Arlette  y  NAVIA, Patricio. Virtuous Cycles in Local Political Representation of Women in Chile, 1992-2016. Rev. interdiscip. estud. género Col. Méx. [online]. 2019, vol.5, e333.  Epub 25-Feb-2019. ISSN 2395-9185.  http://dx.doi.org/10.24201/eg.v5i0.333.

The presence of women in popularly elected positions is associated to the emergence of virtuous cycles, since their performance in office helps bring down stereotypes that limit the access of women to those positions. We study virtuous cycles in the presence of women in elections in Chile. With data from seven indirect (1992-2000) and direct local elections (2004-2016) in the 345 municipalities of the country, we identify that, in the three four-year terms of indirect elections, there were 59 municipalities with a woman mayor. In the period with direct elections, those municipalities elected more women than the rest of municipalities in the country. We associate a higher presence of women mayors in Chile today to a higher presence in the 1992-2000 period.

Palabras llave : Gender quotas; women’s quotas; representation of women; local elections; mayors; Chile.
