Launched in 2010, the Argentina Country Chapter’s mission is to increase women's political participation and promote democracy in Argentina through training and sharing best practices in democratic governance.
In 2011, the Chapter conducted a nationwide campaign advocating for the end of violence against women. The Chapter created a training curriculum and book outlining the statistics and facts aboutgender and domestic violence issues and then conducted trainings in seven districts in Northern Buenos Aires and eight districts in Southern Buenos Aires. Participants reviewed existing domestic violence legislation, services available to victims of domestic violence, and the importance ofwomen in elected office to combat these issues through legislative means.
