Explores the history of women’s participation in constitution-making in Colombia, and outlines the strategies women have adopted to have their aspirations for constitutional equality heard. The chapter considers the power of the law to change social meaning, and its record in the Colombian context. It describes Colombia’s 1991 constitution-making process, which began in a time of deep national crisis, caused by the sudden rise in drug-cartel violence and assassinations in the 1980s, and the government’s helplessness to respond, which led to a sense of chaos. It explains the way constitution-making assisted peace-building and forged a coalition of women’s groups, overcoming internal divisions, giving rise to new women’s organisations, and inspiring progressive laws.
