Values and attitudes towards women in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico


The study explored personal values and attitudes towards women in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico. An analysis of 2,737 usable survey instruments revealed that females across the countries were more equalitarian in their attitudes towards women in the workforce than were men. Additionally, Colombians had more equalitarian attitudes towards women scores, followed by Brazil and Argentina; Mexico exhibited the least equalitarian attitudes toward women in the workforce. This is contrary to our initial expectations and the existing evidence upon which we based our hypotheses. We offer explanations for the results and discuss the implications of our findings and limitations.
