Abstract: According to UNESCO, women account for a minority of the world’s researchers; in 2013, only 28.4% of total persons employed in Research and Development were women, data confirming the gender disparity in science. The Latin-American and the Caribbean region shows essential differences among countries. While some seem to have good numbers of women working in science, as a percentage of total researchers, such as Argentina, 52%; Venezuela, 56%; and Bolivia, 62%; others like Honduras, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador and Chile achieve low rates with around 30%.
