Gender Agendas in the 2018 Presidential Campaigns in Mexico

Gilberto Morales, Esperanza Palma

Resumen


This article analyzes gender related issues posed by three presidential candidates nominated by partisan coalitions in the 2018 elections. The coalition’s electoral platforms were reviewed and, drawing from journalistic information, a data base was constructed in which all of Lopez  Obrador’s, Meade’s and Anaya’s events during their campaigns were registered. The main conclusion is that, in their agendas, the topics of gender from a distributive approach that reinforces traditional roles for women are predominant. In a parallel way, various feminist and lgbt+ collectives presented agendas for equality, which have been as a consequence represented by alternative communities.
