Closing the gender gap in Latin America

Latin American women have won some hard-fought victories in the struggle for gender equality in recent decades. International Women’s Day provides a great opportunity to celebrate where and how gender gaps are being closed, as well as examining where challenges remain.

Here we look at gender equality in politics, education, and the workforce, as well as highlighting the importance of unpaid care work and household chores. We then take a deeper dive into women in Mexican politics, female representation in the boardroom, and the gendered dynamics of Latin America’s ageing population.
