An Analysis of Women's Access to Education and Workplace Restrictions in Developed Versus Developing Countries
MetadataShow full item record
Gender disparity has become a topic of major discussion in developing countries in recent years, particularly in relation to the access to education and workforce restrictions. The general purpose of this research is to gain an understanding of the factors that limit women’s access to education and workforce restrictions placed on women in the three countries, the United States, Mexico, and Guatemala. Using The WomanStats Project, an Internal Review Board approved open access database, our team will compare and contrast the differences between the three selected countries. We highlighted the effects the gender disparity of access to education and workforce restrictions can have on a country and have detailed solutions to counteract these disparities. Using The WomanStats Project, we analyzed the complexity of the factors that contribute to the limitations placed on women in each of the selected countries. This research should provide valuable data and assist in creating a guide to make improvements for women in the United States, Mexico, and Guatemala.
