Publication: Work and Family : Latin American and Caribbean Women in Search of a New Balance
Files in English
The paper examines the uneven progress women have made in the Latin American and Caribbean region in the last forty years. It examines issues such as health care, education, work-life balance, and family planning. The report states that while women in the region have made spectacular progress in the areas of education and health access, economic development amongst women has become flat and there is a challenge for policy makers to increase access to opportunities for women. This is especially apparent in the wage gap between men and women found throughout the region.
