From the Introduction: "The purpose of this publication is to make the invisible, visible. It is a testament to what institutions can achieve when they include women. It is a testament to the tenacity of strong women proving every day that their contributions are extremely valuable for their institutions and society. Twenty years ago, the United Nations urged its member states to 'ensure increased representation of women at all decision-making levels in national, regional, and international institutions and mechanisms for the prevention, management, and resolution of conflict.' Today, it is clear that across Latin America, the Caribbean, and our own country, we are making progress. Nevertheless, we also know that much remains to be done. While this book celebrates many successes, it likewise shines a light on barriers that we must overcome."
