According to Gallup findings, “Latin Americans were the least likely in the world in 2012 and 2013 to say women in their countries are treated with respect and dignity.”
A poll shows that only 35 percent of respondents believed that women in their country were treated with respect and dignity, while 61 percent said “no“, and three percent responded that they didn’t know. Latin American countries have the lowest numbers of all countries.
Although there has been some progress over the years, Gallup states that when it pertains to these polling numbers that, “this low percentage in relation to the rest of the world reflects how gender inequality and violence against women persist throughout Latin America.”
