A New Constitution: Historical Opportunity to Advance Gender Equality and Women’s Rights in Chile

Grantee: Centro Regional de Derechos Humanos y Justicia de Género

The project objective is to promote women’s participation and gender content in Chile’s current constitutional process; advance women’s understanding of a new constitution’s importance to them and their rights; generate debates on key gender issues; advocate for the inclusion of gender aspects in the drafting process. The project is highly relevant in the Covid-19 world and its aftermath, where it will be essential to address the massive impact of the crisis on women, ensuring that responses uphold their rights and are inclusive of their needs.
