Este trabajo analiza el empoderamiento femenino en América Latina desde la perspectiva de los Informes de Desarrollo Humano de Naciones Unidas. Atendemos a los dos indicadores que miden el empoderamiento de las mujeres en el Índice de Desigualdad de Género 2010-2011: los logros educacionales en niveles de estudios secundarios o superiores y la representación parlamentaria. Además, ponemos de manifiesto su papel determinante en la reducción de esas desigualdades mediante un modelo econométrico para un conjunto de veinte países seleccionados. This paper analyzes the female empowerment in Latin America from the perspective of the United Nations Human Development Reports. We attend the two indicators that measure women's empowerment in the Gender Inequality Index 2010-2011: educational attainment (secondary level and above) and parliamentary representation. We also show their decisive role in the reduction of these inequalities through an econometric model for a set of 20 selected countries.
