Reducing Violence and Discrimination against Women: The Peruvian Case

Esperanza Marlene Zapata Carnaque | Marlyn Vanessa Vargas Rojas

Abstract: The number of inhabitants in the world continues to increase, with eight billion inhabitants by mid-November, according to the UN (2022). The report entitled The CIA World Factbook prepared by the CIA (2021) states that as the population grows, the more significant the difference between men and women. As of 2021, 67 million more men than women lived on the planet, constituting the largest ever recorded difference between the two sexes: For every 51 men, there were 49 women. Although this report does not include figures on violence and discrimination, these are found in other documents consulted. Even in the 21st century, violence and discrimination against women are complex social problems to solve, so as part of the international research mobility at the University of Santiago de Cali, I was interested in learning how countries close to Peru had faced this situation and achieved a better country for all its citizens. Thus, in co-authorship with a Colombian colleague, we prepared this research article that seeks to measure the effectiveness of Peruvian public policies so that they can be replicated by other countries and learn from the successes of sister countries.
