The Ministry of Women, Genders and Diversity (Spanish: Ministerio de las Mujeres, Géneros y Diversidad; MMGyD) was a ministry of the Argentine Government tasked with overseeing the country's public policies on issues affecting women and gender and sexual minorities. The ministry was created in 2019, as one of the initial measures of President Alberto Fernández; the first minister was Elizabeth Gómez Alcorta.[2]

The ministry overtook the responsibilities of the National Institute for Women (Instituto Nacional de la Mujer; INAM), which existed from 2017 to 2019.[3]

The ministry was dissolved in December 10, 2023 following a decree by President Javier Milei after his inauguration.

Structure

The Ministry is subdivided into the following dependencies:[4]

  • Secretariat of Equality and Diversity Policies (Secretaría de Políticas de Igualdad y Diversidad)
    • Undersecretariat of Equality Policies (Subsecretaría de Políticas de Igualdad)
    • Undersecretariat of Diversity Policies (Subsecretaría de Políticas de Diversidad)
  • Secretariat of Policies against Gender-based Violence (Secretaría de Políticas contra la Violencia por Razones de Género)
    • Undersecretariat for a Comprehensive Approach to Gender-based Violence (Subsecretaría de Abordaje Integral de la Violencia por Razones de Género)
    • Undersecretariat of Special Programmes against Gender-based Violence (Subsecretaría de Programas Especiales contra la Violencia por Razones de Género)
    • Undersecretariat of Training, Research and Cultural Policies for Equality (Subsecretaría de Formación, Investigación y Políticas Culturales para la Igualdad)

Headquarters

The Ministry's offices are currently located across three other government facilities, the main one being the one located at Balcarce 186, in the Buenos Aires barrio of Monserrat.[5] In April 2020 the government announced plans to house the whole ministry in the offices at Cochabamba 54, in the barrio of San Telmo.[6]
