Logo Proyecto 85
A non-partisan, non-profit organization that promotes equity in Puerto Rico’s elected political positions, founded to provide training, and  catalyze the participation of women as political candidates and future elected officials.

Equal Representation

If women occupied 85 of the principal public elective positions in Puerto Rico, we would achieve equal representation to influence public policies and achieve the quality of life that we desire for ourselves, our families, and our communities.

Mission & Vision

We believe in our capacity and experience as leaders to generate positive change in our government and in our country. We aspire to achieve an inclusive and diverse Puerto Rico that values ​​the participation and rights of each and every one of its residents equally.

In order to increase the number of women in elected political positions, our mission is to facilitate training that contributes to successful political campaigns and candidacies in Puerto Rico.

Our vision is to ensure that 85 of the country’s main elective political positions are filled by women committed to promoting an inclusive, diverse, efficient, and transparent government.

%

Women represent over half of Puerto Rico’s population.

Of the 161 principal public office positions in our government, only 23 are led by women.

Only 12 of the 81 legislative assembly positions are occupied by women.

In Puerto Rico only 9 of the 78 municipalities are led by women.

Reasons to support
equal representation
in our government

According to the study Men Rule: The Continued Under-Representation of Women in U.S. Politics, women’s political participation contributes positively in the following ways:

Diversity

Gender diversity in government increases the probability that public policy debates and deliberations are inclusive.

Community

Female municipal legislators spend more time providing services to their constituents than do male legislators.

Cooperation

It’s been proven that female mayors take citizens’ opinions into account in their decision-making and emphasize cooperation, whereas male mayors tend to emphasize hierarchy in their decision-making.

Leadership

There is a positive correlation between women’s political and electoral participation and their contributions and the political participation of female adolescents.
