Mexico: Gender and Sexuality at the Centre of the Hurricane

In Spanish

This paper will analyze the process through which
recent conservative attacks have put gender and sexuality
at the centre of social and political debates to slow
down the advancement of women’s rights and to avoid
the recognition of the rights of dissident sexualities. It
will examine recent developments in Latin America, in
comparison with the situation in Mexico today. While
Latin America is currently turning more conservative,
Mexico had apparently taken a distinctive path with
Lopez Obrador’s election. The main actions taken in
the 100 first days of government will be scrutinized to
understand the foundations of what has been called the
Fourth Transformation. It will reveal, however, that
many resemblances between old and new practices
which threatens the full enjoyment of sexual rights.
