The political participation and the leading role of women is a questioning of androcentric political power structures. This phenomenon is manifested in Venezuela through a process of re-signification of the exercise of politics by women, who are elected to assume decision-making responsibilities within grassroots organizations of the People’s Power (OBPP) to carry out projects based on their community needs that are charged to the System of Community Integration (SINCO) with the aim of requesting financial support from the State, this tool systematizes the information obtained from organized citizens. With the intention of strengthening the exercise of e-government, an exploratory study was carried out with a descriptive analysis of the database of projects registered in SINCO to identify patterns and the relationship between all variables associated with gender. The analysis of the data shows the participation and leading role of women, which also implies a qualitative transformation in the logic of the exercise of political power, since women have been executing projects that have historically been associated with male gender roles.
