Women’s economic autonomy in a changing labour market

In Latin America and the Caribbean, there are all sorts of structural constraints that limit the full enjoyment of women’s rights and progress towards gender equality. Globalization, changing demographic patterns, climate change, economic conditions and inequality in technology access and use within and between countries pose additional challenges. In addition, the appearance, interaction and confluence of a whole number of disruptive technologies have all the features of a new technological revolution. The rapid changes associated with existing and emerging technologies are making themselves felt in a number of dimensions of development, creating opportunities and challenges for societies and economies; in particular, they are giving rise to new scenarios for the world of work.
