Introduction

The purpose of this publication is to offer a subtantial sample of the thinking over recent years about time use, its measurement and the policies associated with it in the region. Numerous studies and some policies have engaged with this field of knowledge. Much of the available literature has been written by academics in the United States and Europe, primarily feminist economists. In Latin America, in the main, the subject of care and its importance and meaning have come on to the gender agenda since the tenth session of the Regional Conference on Women in Latin America and the Caribbean, held in Quito in 2007.
