ABSTRACT
This article examines the deficit in women's citizenship in Latin American and particularly in Argentina. It revisits some of the contributions of liberal theories on the concept of citizenship and its most recent evolutions. It studies the contribution of feminist criticism in order to discuss the principle of universality that must preserve the fundamental idea of 'human rights'. The demands in the domestic sphere, where women's action is prominent even today, put limits to the participation of women in politics in Argentina and Latin America. Thus, politics, as an activity that expresses the right to citizenship, is still reserved for men. A decisive aspect in women's differential participation is the idea of time: for women the amount of time required by political activity is often a deficit due to the multiple demands of domestic management.
