Resumen en español Aportaremos evidencias de cómo las relaciones familiares constituyen un factor importante en la construcción de espacios de poder y exploraremos las razones por las cuales se erigen en una estructura de oportunidades particularmente relevante para las mujeres, enlazando la discusión en el marco del debate sobre la representación política y la teoría de la democracia
Resumen en inglés The focus on political careers is a central concern of political science, which has been intensified in recent decades. A political career can be characterized “considering the political recruitment mechanisms, the type of candidate, the trajectory, and the ambitions of the actors” (Bieda, 2015, p. 6). The most profuse is the ambition theory, from Schlessinger’s seminal study (1966) and his followers (Black, 1972; Rhode, 1979; Borchert, 2001, 2011) as well as the analysis of trajectories and the incorporation of the concept of “structure of opportunities”, this is what the political system offers in terms of institutional incentives, such as the electoral system, the form of government, parties organizational structure, as elements that influence political recruitment (Sartori, 1987). However, any of these perspectives is incomplete if variables as gender and patriarchy are not incorporated. They reveal differences in recruitment mechanisms and opportunities, as well as in men and women’ paths in the political arena. Among these differences lie the place of family ties, which are significantly higher among women representatives. In this paper, we will focus on one type of family relationships, which are the “political marriages” that have the condition that at least one of them have reached the Provincial Executive Power at a subnational level, taking as the temporary axis the period 1983-2015. We will seek through the review of the resumes and interviews reconstruct socio-cultural profiles, and will explore the political paths these members of the political marriages have gone through. We will provide evidence of how family relationships are an important factor in power building and explore the reasons why they are developed on a structure of opportunity that is particularly relevant for women, linking the discussion within the framework of the debate on political representation and the theory of democracy
