La bancada femenina en Uruguay: un «actor crítico» para la representación sustantiva de las mujeres en el parlamento

Niki JOHNSON

Resumen


En el marco de los debates contemporáneos sobre la representación política de las mujeres, este artículo se propone a estudiar la bancada femenina en el Parlamento uruguayo en el período 2000-2010 para identificar y analizar a partir de este caso arquetípico en la región las posibilidades y desafíos que plantean las iniciativas de articulación multipartidaria para lograr la representación sustantiva de las mujeres. El análisis explora cómo las distintas dimensiones de la representación –descriptiva, sustantiva y simbólica– se articulan en la composición, funcionamiento, actuación y discurso de este actor colectivo, y evalúa cómo inciden tanto la agencia de diferentes actores/as, como factores contextuales institucionales y coyunturales en la representación sustantiva de las mujeres en el caso uruguayo.

Palabras clave


representación descriptiva; sustantiva; simbólica; bancada femenina; Parlamento uruguayo
