During the Regional Conference, member countries discussed the following
fundamental issues for gender equity: analysis of the contribution of women
to the economy and social protection, especially in relation to unpaid work
performed by women; and political participation and gender parity in
decision-making processes at all levels. These will be the main themes of the
tenth session of the Regional Conference, as agreed at the thirty-ninth
meeting of the Presiding Officers of the Regional Conference on Women in
Latin America and the Caribbean.
