Women in Peru represent a minority both in number and legal rights. After the spanish conquest, the culture in what is now is Peru became increansingly patriarchal. The patriachal culture remains remarkable . Women recieve les pay than men, have fewer employment and political opportunities and are sometimes mistreated witout repercussions. The availability of contraceptives is not sufficient for demand, and more than a third of pregnancies end in abortions. Maternal mortality rates are also some of the highest in South America. The peruvian goverment has begun efforts to combat the high maternal mortality rate and the lack of female political representation, as well as violence against women. On this understanding Incas Path as a sostainable company decided to empower women in the highlands creating many ways to offer them proper equal jobs and give them advice so that they can create their own businesses and be independent litle by litle.
