Women and the Right of Access to Information in Guatemala


This report details the findings that with real access to meaningful information, women can make more effective decisions and harness the opportunities available for education, land, agricultural production, and starting a business.
Often in our societies, it is the most vulnerable populations who suffer the greatest due to limited access to information, and this is very true for women. Even in countries with laws and rights to information, it seems that women are less likely to receive and access needed information. While women are the least likely to demand access to information, they are perhaps the most in need.

This document presents a draft version of the preliminary findings of a study conducted by the Carter Center and Acción Ciudadana in six departments of Guatemala between July and September of 2014.
