CASIQUE-RODRIGUEZ, Irene. Empowerment of young Mexican women and dating violence prevention. Pap. poblac [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.82, pp.27-56. ISSN 2448-7147.

Based on data from the National Survey of the Dynamics of the Relations in the Households 2011, we explore first some indicators of empowerment of young Mexican women (autonomy and ideology of roles) and explore how they vary according to some socio-demographic characteristics of young women (groups of age, level of education, marital status, maternity and activity status). Second, we examine the associations between these indicators and the risk of dating violence. The results suggest that the autonomy of young people plays a very important role as a protective factor against the risk of emotional violence and sexual violence. This confirms the relevance of promoting actions and programs that contribute to increase this dimension of empower among single women.

Keywords : Youth empowerment; dating violence; Mexico.
