On February 2, Liliana Olea, an academic at the University of Guadalajara, registered as a candidate of the Morena party for the municipal presidency of Tonalá.
In her participation in politics, she has led a gender agenda for the benefit of the Tonaltecas. As founder of the group Mujeres de Cambio, she seeks to promote and strengthen the leadership of women who like to participate in politics.
“We are one of the metropolitan municipalities with a lot of deprivation in every way and the gender agenda is no exception. We were a municipality with the agenda totally invisible, but little by little we have managed to make it visible with actions, and we also requested an initiative where street harassment was typified because we were also the only municipality in which it was not typified ”, he commented.
She recalled that on March 8, for the first time, the women of this municipality got together and marched to defend their rights. As a member of the Paritaristas movement, they challenged the guidelines of the IEPC Jalisco, forcing political parties to nominate women in the most populated municipalities, but also the most economically powerful, including Tonalá.
Daughter of artisan parents, she is committed to the generational change and also adds to the fact that the new generations are part of the rich culture that exists in the municipality. Liliana Olea has been a member of the Morena party for six years. She has served in various public positions as an auditor in the municipal comptroller of Tonalá, was at the head of the DIF system and parliamentary advisor in the State Congress.
