    The United Nations World summits cycle of the 90’s (Rio, Vienna, Cairo and Beijing) imposed, in the years following the end of the Cold War, new norms of government, regulating public policies designed for women. The integration of feminists in the making of a “gender field”, a social space built to install new gender norms and discourses upon ancient population policies. Population policies that were redesigned in Reproductive Health policies during the 90’s caused a plethoric creation of new NGOs, created by feminists or population experts, to monitor the gendering of public policies and the compliance with International texts. Financed by American foundations and new partners of policy making, these NGOs and their leaders became important “gender category smugglers” in Mexico, notably within the political discourses. These leaders managed to build careers, organizations and new needs in relation to the State that made “gender entrepreneurs” of a new kind, engaged in subcontracting public policies and criticizing the State.
