Brief Description

The Federal Action Plan against Gender-based Violence 2020-2022 was created under Argentine Law No. 26.485 of 2009 on the Comprehensive Protection of Women and, for the first time, its governing body has been elevated to the rank of Ministry. This is the first Plan designed by the Ministry of Women, Gender and Diversity, a ministry created as a result of the convergence of the struggle taken up by the movement of women, feminisms and LGBTI+ groups and the political will of the Government of President Alberto Fernández and Vicepresident Cristina Fernández de Kirchner to afford high-ranking status to public policies aimed at achieving equality and eradicating gender-based violence.
