Though they may have started in response to a rise in metro fare, the protests that erupted all over Chile last year were about much more.

The social unrest showed us that despite rapid economic growth in recent decades, the most vulnerable segments of society still face real economic challenges. This is especially the case of Chilean women, who have one of the lowest rates of employment in Latin America.

Many of them took to the streets to demand equal treatment and call for the government to act on issues like income disparity, gender-based violence, and the persistence of traditional gender roles. It was in this context that we traveled to Santiago at the beginning of the year for data collection on behalf of our project. Women, Business and the Law is a World Bank Group flagship report measuring gender equality in legislation in economies.

Considering that at the global level the average economy saw a change in score of just Despite this, Chile still scores the lowest among OECD high-income economies which have an average score of Meeting with local legal experts throughout the week, we heard stories of the ways in which the unequal treatment of women affects their economic opportunity. For instance, victims of sexual harassment at work told us that they would rather quit their jobs than report it.

The procedure established by law to investigate and punish such conduct can often times lack transparency and result in humiliation for victims, proving that it is virtually ineffective. Another lawyer talked of the blatant wage discrimination she faced — her boss told her openly that she is paid less than a male colleague doing the same job. In his view, this compensated for the possibility of her having children one day and taking leave to care for them.

One woman explained that her mother refused to get married out of fear that she would be discriminated against when trying to get a line of credit to open her business. Even if she was successful, she was afraid a husband would then control her property. Specifically, his administration will focus on removing a day waiting period for women to remarry and reforming any discriminatory provisions related to the conjugal society.

On July 28 ththe Constitutional Commission of the Senate of Chile approved a draft law which amends the Civil Code by abrogating the waiting period for the remarriage of women. The reforms announced are even more relevant now, as we consider the effects of the COVID pandemic on gender inequalities.

As women comprise a majority of the informal economy in Latin America and the Caribbean, this pandemic makes them more vulnerable to unemployment and poverty. Also, women occupy most of the jobs deemed essential during this time, which increases their likelihood of getting the disease. Women, Business and the Law will continue to highlight reform initiatives such as the one taking place in Chile, and the effects of gender inequality.

It is only when women can fully and equally participate in economic life that we can achieve sustainable economic growth, even in difficult circumstances. Hi, my name is Sussy Jones and I was just admitted to the University of Utah to do a master's in History with an emphasis in gender studies. I am originally from Chile and in my research, I would like to tackle some of the histories of legal rights of women in Chile. I Love your blog and I would like to know if you have some of the documents on your research that I could use. Most importantly related to the reforms that need to change about women's legal rights in marriage.

Any help you can offer me would be amazing.

Each of these stories has a clear legal parallel: Though there is legislation prohibiting sexual harassment in employment in Chile, there are no criminal penalties for its perpetrators or civil remedies for its victims. The law does not mandate equal remuneration for work of equal value, or prohibit discrimination based on gender in access to credit. Finally, perhaps the most prominent challenge facing Chilean women is the persistence of the conjugal society. This default marital property regime automatically makes the husband the head of the household and administrator of marital property.
