Abstract

En este documento se presenta un conjunto de recomendaciones de política para generar una efectiva igualdad de oportunidades para hombres y mujeres y, de esta forma, mejorar las dinámicas de movilidad social en Colombia. Para esto, inicialmente se explora la evidencia existente sobre la situación de la mujer en la sociedad colombiana y se hace un análisis de mejores prácticas nacionales e internacionales para la mejora de tal situación. El análisis sigue con una evaluación de dimensiones del bienestar de las personas y sus hogares, identificando las dimensiones y mercados en que se manifiestan las desigualdades asociadas al sexo de los individuos para diferentes grupos etarios. Dentro de las recomendaciones, siguiendo un enfoque de ciclo de vida, se incorporan tanto políticas para aliviar las desigualdades acumulativas en el corto plazo como medidas que permitan construir las bases de un cambio cultural más duradero más allá de las propuestas inmediatas de corrección de las brechas. Esto último es un reto, ya que las fuentes identificadas de desventaja femenina están en parte en el ámbito de lo privado particularmente al interior de los hogares.
