Feminindex is a questionnaire that measures the political commitment and positioning of candidates regarding the gender agenda in Argentina

Problems and Purpose

Feminindex is an initiative created in 2017 by the organization “Feminist Economy” (Span. Economía Femini(s)ta) to measure through surveys the political commitment and positioning of candidates regarding the gender agenda in Argentina. The organization's main goal is to raise awareness about the different sources of gender-based economic inequality. Feminindex was reactivated for the primary and general elections held this year in the country.

What Went On: Process, Interaction, and Participation

This initiative consists of a questionnaire, designed for candidates, that covers topics like sexual and reproductive rights, feminist economic measures, gender-based violence, LGBTQI+ rights and gender parity in politics. Candidates had the option to answer yes, no or to leave questions unanswered; they could also justify their answers in up to 300 characters. Based on their answers, Feminindex scored them to assess their commitment to gender issues. The score was uploaded and made public in the webpage. In addition to increasing the visibility of the gender agenda in national politics, Feminindex is open for citizens to suggest topics that they would like to add to the discussion.
