Resumo

Este artigo investiga qual o efeito sobre as finanças públicas municipais brasileiras da eleição de mulheres para o cargo de chefe do Poder Executivo local. Ao realizar um Desenho de Regressão Descontínua (RDD) os resultados indicaram que não há efeito de mulheres eleitas no equilíbrio fiscal municipal. Entretanto, os achados apontam nos gastos com pessoal e gastos sociais. Como mecanismo, o artigo identifica que há uma maior contratação de profissionais da educação e da saúde em decorrência da eleição de prefeitas. Estes resultados foram robustos a outras especificações e testes placebo. O artigo traz colaborações para a literatura fiscal, em especial a brasileira, além de incrementar as pesquisas que estudam diferenças de gênero e seus diversos efeitos no ambiente social.
