Consolidate democracy with the political participation of men and women

Scope: Jauja (Junín)
Cooperating entity: Fondo Ítalo Peruano

It made it possible for men and women in rural and peri-urban areas of Jauja to exercise the right to participation and political representation, and expanded opportunities for local decision making, based on a gender agenda. It promoted the empowerment of women in the personal and family sphere, and the strengthening of spaces for local coordination. At the same time, it promoted the leadership of men for the promotion of gender equality, which implied the questioning of a masculinity based on discrimination and violence against women, and the construction of equitable relationships in the private sphere and in the local management.
