Values and principles
1. Equality between women and men
The Political Constitution of the Republic of Guatemala states in its Article 4 the principle of Equality, establishing that all human beings are free and equal in dignity and rights.
2. Equity to reach Equality
Through the gender approach, we seek to propose an in-depth analysis of the existing inequalities between men and women, as a result of power relations, which historically have relegated women to fulfill certain roles.
3. Specific human rights of women
The recognition of women's human rights is a fundamental step forward for the political practice of women as subjects of rights. However, it is essential to continue shortening the gaps that still exist between the formal recognition of rights and the real enjoyment of them.
