FYI. I just think it's funny because people think Mexico is backward and talk about that unique Latin machismo.

"there are 246 women (48.6%) and 254 men (51.2%) in the Chamber of Deputies and 65 women (50.78%) and 63 men (49.22%) in the Senate. A provisional IPU calculation shows that Mexico has moved up from 9th to 4th place in the world ranking of women in parliament."

Look, an unfortunate fact is women are seldom at the bleeding edge of power. If Mexico’s Congress is half women, what it tells me is that the Mexican Congress isn’t that important to the running of the Mexican State
