POLITICAL HARASSMENT AND VIOLENCE : TESTIMONIES BY SÍNDICAS AND REGIDORAS IN VERACRUZ

Abstrac


The article presents results from a broader research project on the incursion of women in the positions of síndica (trustee) and regidora (councilor) in Veracruz town councils. It centers on the experiences of political violence and harassment gathered from the testimony of three síndicas and 29 regidoras who attended a state meeting of women in town councils, organized by the Veracruz Women’s Insitute (Instituto Veracruzano de las Mujeres), with support from GIMTRAP A.C., in the city of Xalapa in October 2009. It is sought to make visible and document this grave problem, giving voice to the actors themselves, focusing not only on the obstacles experienced to gain access to the position, but also to those that were overcome to exercise it.

Palabras clave: town council, election positions, exclusion, women, political violence.
