Abstract and Keywords

This article closely examines the representation of women in the various levels and branches of government in Mexico's federalist structure. It presents an analysis of how women have fared over the past ten years, and argues that women have been accessing positions of power at all government levels in Mexico for the past sixty years. This article presents data that suggests that Mexican women may now be playing in a politically even field, and that they prefer to step back instead of advancing to positions that hold real political power.

Keywords: representation of women, federalist structure, positions of power, Mexican government
