Since 1991, the National Service for the Women (SERNAM) has been responsible for promoting in chilean society the equality, autonomy, equity, non-discrimination and a life free of violence for all women in all their diversity. It has also promoted the implementation of policies, plans and programs which cut across gender equity in the state. In this line, SERNAM has developed the "Programme on Women, Citizenship and Participation"[1] that seeks to increase the women public participation and presence in decision-making spaces at local, regional and national levels. To this end, the programme performs leadership schools aimed at women who want to acquire skills to represent their communities or organizations in political and social spaces, conducts workshops of promotion of the rights for the exercise of citizenship with gender perspective and discussion groups to strengthen and promote the associative practice.
