Over recent decades the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region has seen a dramatic and virtually uninterrupted rise in female labor force participation (LFP). Women in LAC have increased their participation faster than in any other region of the world, with nearly 70 million women added to the labor force. This evolution occurred in the context of more general progress in women s status. Female enrollment rates from primary to tertiary education have increased to the point of closing or even reversing the gender gap that traditionally favored boys.
