Chapter Summary

In 1992, in order to more fully recognize the rights and responsibilities of its female citizenry, the executive branch promulgated a set of policy guidelines designed to enhance the participation of women in the political life of the nation. In the small rural Province of Concordia, however, the promulgation of these policy guidelines had very little impact. This chapter discusses the case of Maria Gomez-Clark and Cecilia Herold of the Coalition for Community Renewal party, who sought a declaratory judgment that the First Provincial Bank of Concordia had discriminated against them. The case remains pending at the discovery stage. Specifically, they alleged that the State had failed to comply with the obligations to which it was bound according to Articles I, 2, 5, 8, 23-25 of the American Convention.
