Abstract [en]

The study sets out to contribute to research regarding the failure of a gender equality policy

proposal. This case study, drawn from Mexico, examines the proposed legislation on “Violence

against women in politics”. This policy proposal was approved in the senate, however later

stalled within the Mexican Chamber of deputies, and was therefore never adopted. The study

also describes the re-mobilisation efforts that were made due to this failure, in terms of tracing

the progress of further policy proposals presented on “Violence against women in politics”. By

using theory regarding feminist triangles, veto-players and narratives of how to re-mobilise

after defeat, this study finds that the collaboration became more extensive and coherent as

subsequent policy proposals on violence against women were presented. Further remobilisation

also occurred despite some of the specific narratives of defeat suggesting this

would not have been the case. However, as this research shows, those collaborations that

occurred were not strong enough to achieve the adoption of the bill as a critical veto-player

failed to provide the necessary support.
