on Gender Equality: Poor Women Still Lag Behind – One Pager # 49
are pleased to announce the
publication of IPC One Pager #49, “Latin America’s

has shown notable progress on MDG indicators for gender equality. But he

significant progress in securing
decent wage employment in the non-agricultural sector.
