dc.description.abstractInternational and regional organizations, with special emphasis on those comprising the Inter-American Task Force on Women’s Leadership, as well as the feminist and women’s movement, have highlighted that the presence of women in key decision-making spaces is essential to ensuring that the response and recovery from these crises are sustainable and do not deepen pre-existing gaps1. They have also stressed that the achievement of women’s rights and the participation of women in decision-making processes are fundamental to democratic governance. The aspiration is to achieve a “parity democracy” in which sub-stantive equality and parity between men and women become the backbone of the transformations promoted by inclu-sive States. This document, developed jointly by the 13 institutions composing the Inter-American Task Force on Women’s Leader-ship, seeks to contribute to these reflections and call for action to promote women’s leadership and parity democracy in the Americas.
