Early life and education

Norma Haydée Durango was born on 20 November 1952 in Doblas, a rural community in the Atreucó Department of La Pampa Province.[1] She studied to be a teacher at the National University of La Pampa (UNLPam). As a student at the Faculty of Human Sciences of the UNLPam, she co-authored a bibliographical index of authors from La Pampa in 1982.[2]

Political career

Durango was twice Vice Governor of La Pampa: first under Carlos Verna from 2003 to 2007,[3] and then under Óscar Jorge from 2011 to 2015.[4]

Durango was the second candidate on the Front for Victory list to the Argentine Senate alongside Daniel Lovera at the 2015 legislative election;[5] the list won 45.85% and Durango was comfortably elected. She was sworn in on 4 December 2015.[6] She presides the Senate commission on women.[7]

A longstanding supporter of women's reproductive rights and the legalisation of abortion in Argentina,[8] Durango voted in favour of the Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy Bill introduced in 2018, and is a supporter of the similar bill brought forward by President Alberto Fernández in 2020.[9][10][11]
