Gender Issues in Latin America and Spain

Multidisciplinary Perspectives


Edited By Victoria Pérez-de-Guzmán, Encarna Bas-Peña and Margarita Machado-Casas

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights marked a fundamental milestone for the defense of equality between men and women. However, to this day, its development and implementation in everyday practices within diverse social, labor and educational environments remains to be seen. As education is the basis for the prevention of gender discrimination and violence, it is crucial that professionals in their respective fields are familiar with inclusiveness strategies in order to be able to integrate a gender perspective in their teaching.

In this bilingual volume, which includes contributions in both English and Spanish, researchers from Europe and the Americas come together to analyze and reflect on gender issues from a multidisciplinary perspective: from improving gender education in schools and universities, to tackling the gender pay gap and gender-based violence, and understanding the role of gender in both contemporary migratory processes and criminality. Learning from theory and practice is fundamental for paving the way to greater equality all around the world, as it is not enough being aware of the importance of gender equality and our right to it; rather, it is our actions that make it possible to enact change in situations in which inequality continues to manifest itself.
