Pension Reforms and Gender Equality in Latin America by Camila Arza

Pension Reforms and Gender Equality in Latin America by Camila Arza

Ratings: (0)|Views: 19 |Likes:
As most other components of social protection systems, pension schemes can have a substantial impact on gender equality. The way in which pension systems distribute rights, resources and risks can affect men and women differently and serve to mitigate, reproduce or amplify the gender inequalities emerging from the labour market, the distribution of work in the household, and so on. The paper shows that recent pension reforms in the three countries studied have embraced some of these measures, and the gender equality issue is slowly being introduced in Latin American pension reform agendas.
