Abstract [en]

The objective of this thesis is to investigate how social movements such as Ni Una Menos have used political opportunities and mobilisation structures to grow. Moreover, as I researcher I am interested in building an understanding of how social movements impact women's empowerment and agency. Femicide, which is defined as the murder of women due to their gender, has been a major problem in Argentina for a long time and the high rates of femicide crimes have caused concern and frustration among the population. This study intends to uncover the political opportunities and mobilisation efforts the NUM movement has utilised to combat femicide as well as to examine how the Ni Una Menos movement has contributed to the empowerment and agency of women in Argentina. The study does this by drawing from political process theory as well as feminist theory. 

The data used for the study was collected through five semi-structured interviews that were conducted in Buenos Aries, Argentina from November 2023 to January 2024. A content analysis was utilised to analyse the data. At the time of the founding of the NUM, the results indicate that the mobilisation strategies utilised have existed in the country long before the founding of the NUM. Furthermore, in terms of agency and empowerment, the results show that feminist social movements have had a positive effect on these two aspects for women in Argentina. Lastly, this research contributes to a deeper knowledge of femicide in Argentina and offers insights for policy intervention and social change initiatives aimed at preventing femicide.
