Not Tokens Anymore: A Study of Presidential Cabinets with Particular Attention to Gender

November 5th, 2010
12:00 PM

Location
Greenleaf Conference Room
100A Jones Hall
Tulane University

A lecture by Michelle Taylor-Robinson Lecture.

_Are Latin American women as successful in government as their male colleagues? What positions do women in Latin American politics partake in? Are there “feminine” and “masculine” domains? What are the qualifications of cabinet ministers and do these vary according to gender? Do male and female cabinet ministers leave office for the same reasons? How do countries in the region compare to each other?

The Center for Inter-American Policy and Research (CIPR) and the Newcomb College Institute invite you to explore the representation of women in Latin American government with a talk by Michelle Taylor-Robinson on November 5, 2010 entitled “Not Tokens Anymore: A Study of Cabinets in Presidential Systems with Particular Attention to Gender.” The talk will examine data from Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Costa Rica.
