A questao de genero no Brasil (Portuguese)

With the goal of increasing effectiveness in reducing poverty in all of its forms the World Bank undertakes studies about gender equality. This report is one of several already undertaken in other countries of South and Central America. It examines the relationship between gender discrimination and poverty, and women's access to political, economic, cultural, and social resources, and consequently recommends policies to improve the status of women by reducing socioeconomic inequality between men and women. This report focuses especially "negros" (Black), "pardos" (mixed ethnicity), and indigenous women and groups, because their situation requires the most urgent intervention. The report analyzes the condition of women from the standpoint of demographics, health indicators, causes and effects of violence, education indicators, labor market trends, and social protection.
