Protestors demand for more protection among women living in Columbia. This probably concerns Latin wives in these areas. Only 20% of the respondents claim their women are well honored here. One demonstrator held a sign saying “Women, neither conformable, nor earnest, wants to be pretty, free and enthusiastic.”

For the second sequential year, a detailed study found out that people residing in Latin America are the least likely to say they are living in countries where women are treated with dignity and respect, a position just beneath North Africa and the Middle East.

According to the Gallup study, they had a vast variety of viewpoints within Latin America: with about 60% of respondents in Ecuador claiming they got respect, and only 20% said they felt alike in Columbia and Peru.

“An average of 35% of adults around 22 Latin American countries said Latin wives are highly treated with honor. This is nearly half as high as proportionalities in any other regions of the world,” Gallup said.

Asia topped the highest in the survey, with 76% saying their women were highly respected. Europe did make it to the second place, with about 72%. Thousands of people in around 150 countries participated in the study done in 2012 and 2013.

For further information, Gallup says those who responded to the request in the U.S. claims 77% of respondents said women here were treated with dignity and respect.

Resulting to Gallup’s expert features to awareness campaigns and new laws, Ecuador was the only Latin American country with more than 60% respondents who claimed their women were highly respected. It’s also actually one among the five countries where more than 50% said women were treated with great respect.

The study also featured such interesting difference: In some nations, men were admitting that their Latin wives were treated with respect. The biggest gap was in Jamaica, where men were twice as likely to say they treated their women with respect (41% to 19%). Argentina had the second biggest gap with 50% to 36%.

“In your own opinion, can you see how women are treated with dignity and respect in this region?”

Gallup claims they surveyed around 1000 people in face to face interviews in around 19 Latin American nations, and 500 in three more countries.
