When women in Peru obtained the right to vote, they broadened their fields of activity in public life. However, their participation falls far short of that by men. There are four factors which deter them: lack of education, economic dependence, social needs, and legal questions. The female role inside and outside of school is reviewed with an evaluation of historic influences and family prejudices. Economic circumstances are presented, enumerating the needs for reform. The social factor is analyzed in the light of the Peruvian milieu, and some basic changes are noted in this area. Finally, legal questions are treated in relationship to social matters and to the work and dignity of the Peruvian woman.
