The full report investigates women's status in the context of globalization from the mid 1980s through the late 1990s. The report shows that only eight nations have successfully met global agreements to achieve both gender equality in secondary education enrollment and at least a 30 per cent share of women's seats in parliament. This document is an extract from Chapter One of the report, which focuses on Empowerment and Economics. Although not specifically focused on HIV/AIDS, this excerpt provides a framework for the gender division of labour in the household and a discussion on women's work, including women's unpaid care work.
