Mexico Elections Herald Massive Governmental Equality Swing

While all the focus was on AMLO during the elections this month, women in Mexico have achieved a significant political victory and are poised to make up a notable cross-section of the country’s government.

When the next congress is officially put to action, women will make up 47.8% of the lower house, 49.2% of the senate, and at least 50% of most state legislatures. The country’s senate will also follow Belgium with the world’s second-largest female representation.

Mexico City’s mayor will also be a woman — Claudia Sheinbaum (pictured). “Andrés Manuel is convinced that women have a much higher capacity for hard work,” she said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. “It is a conviction of his.”
