From the Paper:"Mexico is geographically the United States' closest non-English speaking neighbor. As trade barriers fall to NAFTA, it becomes necessary to examine closely the lifestyles of this nation which promises to become a close business partner. There are many attributes of Mexican life compatible with the American lifestyle, but in one key area the two countries differ greatly: the status of women in society, in the family, and in the workplace. An examination of the lifestyles of Mexican women will reveal a status quo much lower than that enjoyed by women in the United States. It is a status resulting from an acute discrepancy in gender relations.
The root cause for this discrepancy in gender status lies in the basic social structure of Mexico. Mexico is rigidly hierarchic in social, family and organizational orientation."
