Women key to Latin America economic progress
By Stephanie Leutert, CFR
‎"Over the last decade, poverty, and inequality have fallen throughout Latin America," notes Stephanie Leutert. "Behind these positive trends are external factors, such as high global commodity prices and substantial foreign direct investment flows. And there are also internal influences, such as Latin America’s growing middle class, increased consumption, and successful government-run conditional cash transfers (which offer money to low income families who keep their kids healthy and in school). But another, less talked, about factor moving the region toward greater economic development is the millions of Latin American women in the workforce."
