About the product

This publication reviews progress and challenges in two areas of analysis: Gender Equity - the basis for a fair an equitable society, and Human Rights and Peace for Latin America and the Caribbean. Its purpose is to show what types of relationships exist between the advancement of women and the changes this produces in society, together with the effects of global changes on social and gender equity. Moreover the publication demonstrates that progress is being limited by the symptoms of stagnation present in the region and that the extent to which the rights of women are advanced is a clear indicator of progress in the consolidation of democracy and respect for human rights.
