This research focuses on analysing the impact that the increased women political participation has on the Human Development of Mexico. The research aims to expand our knowledge and understanding on how is that an increased presence of women in a legislature can affect the development of a country. The theoretical basis of this work is found on the theories of Gender and Development; Human Development and Quality of Democracy, and the analysis is conducted on the Process Tracing Methodology. The focus of this work is on the case of the lower chamber in the Mexican legislature from the period of 2000 to 2020 and how its actions possibly affected the scores of the country in the Female Human Development Index (FHDI) and the Gender Inequality Index (GII) run by the United Nations Development Program. The result of the analysis of this research stablishes a positive correlation between the increased Women Presence in the Chamber and the scores of Mexico in the FHDI and the GII. This correlation is based on the behaviour of the Gender Committee, as the proposals made by it increased alongside the women presence, and the results of this proposal were reflected through time in the indexes.
