Former Minister of Education in Colombia, Gina Parody, resigned from her position when trying to fulfill a court order against discrimination at schools, after massive backlash instigated by conservative and religious political opposition. This is not an isolated event, but part of a broader populist trend in Latin American politics, and elsewhere. Join Ms. Parody and two other public officials from Colombia and Mexico in a conversation about the influence of religion, gender ideology, and conservatism in politics and the implications for policy development.
