The gender participation gap in the labor market in Latin America and the Caribbean is more than 25% and one of the largest in the world. After entering the labor market, women tend to participate in low-quality, low-paying jobs, contributing to the gender wage gap. One of the main challenges that women continue to face in the labor market is the cultural expectation regarding their role as caregivers. Women in the region spend twice as many hours as their male peers doing domestic labor and unpaid care work. In addition, migration also has an influence on the labor market. For example, the arrival of immigrants may affect whether women enter the workforce and the number of hours they work. How can we move forward on this agenda?
