These gendered spatial oppositions have proven to be enduring, from the suffrage movements of the early twentieth century to the new policy prescription of decentralization at the end of the century. An elective affinity between municipal government 26 Gender Politics in Brazil and Chile and women’s agency has been proposed from a variety of perspectives – conservative, feminist and development-oriented – that invoke women as more caring, pragmatic and honest political actors, due to the proximity of both women and municipal government to the local community, a view that chimes with the regional cultural tropes of marianism10 and complementarity but for which there is scant empirical evidence.
Firstly, Brazil’s civilian–military technocracy actually intensified the state-led 35 36 Brazil developmentalist policies of previous decades in order to move from import-substitution to export-oriented industrialization. This had the effect of creating enclaves of militant industrial workers that spawned first the ‘new union’ movement, and then a unique new left-wing force, the PT. 2 Thus, the transition was conducted via elections from 1974 onwards, forcing the women’s movement into an early engagement with party political and electoral issues, and engendering fierce debates between and among the party women of the centre-left and the ‘independents’ of the movements.
Parties formed at moments of major party system realignment, such as the regional wave of democratization in the late 1940s, immediately courted women as an ‘uncaptured’ constituency. In Costa Rica, José Figueres Ferrer, founder of the National Liberation Party (Partido de Liberación Nacional – PLN), granted female suffrage at the end of the civil war in 1948, just after the Argentine Peronists had seized a similar opportunity left open by that country’s Radical and Socialist parties. Both subsequently made women and workers central pillars of their electoral and social dominance, maintaining women as a core constituency through the enactment of quota laws, state institutions and social policies (Saint-Germain and Morgan, 1991).
