      This book compares two ideologically opposed examples of women's movements in Chile. It studies the women who mobilized against the democratically elected government of President Salvador Allende () and those who mobilized against the military dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet ()/5(1). Reviewing work by Schiefelbein and Farrell () in Chile, Heyneman () in Uganda, Fuller and Heyneman (), Heyneman and Loxley () and many others, Fuller showed marked differences.

    Currently, less than half of women participate in Chile’s overall labor force. Low female participation in Chile’s labor market is most striking in rural areas. Only 38 percent of women in rural areas work in paid positions, while 88 percent of men work—a gap of 50 percentage points.   Inequality continues to be the topic of discussion around the world and especially in Latin America. It is not surprising that Latin American educational results are also some of the worst around.

    Indigenous Latin Americans suffer even more from lack of schooling. For instance, in Bolivia's urban areas, the average non-indigenous person goes to school for ten years, Spanish-speaking indigenous people average six years of schooling, and those who do not speak Spanish have an average of years of schooling.   The WBG supports girls’ education through a variety of interventions. These include stipends to improve primary and secondary school completion for girls and young women, skills development programs, gender-inclusive and responsive teaching and learning, recruitment and training of female teachers, and building safe and inclusive schools for girls and young women.
