“Female Quality of Life”

Female Quality of Lifegeo-mexico-figure-29-7gender_home

Mexico has long been a male dominated society and this “machismo” is still strong in Mexican Socity as the map from the article shows the huge gap between quality of life of a man and a woman. It is interesting to see that the gap seems to get smaller for the states closer to the U.S. Mexico border and I wonder if the proximty to the U.S. is a factor.
