GUTIERREZ CASAS, Luis Enrique  and  LIMAS HERNANDEZ, Myrna. Incorporación de la mujer al mercado de trabajo y desarrollo regional en Chihuahua. Estud. front [online]. 2008, vol.9, n.18, pp.39-70. ISSN 2395-9134.

This paper explores the relationship between economic development and the entrance of women into the labor market. In particular are reviewed the links between female labor force participation [FLFP]; and several variables associated to development -economic structure, income level, poverty, inequality, marginalization, human development and other specific gender indicators. This essay analyses the case of the municipalities of the mexican northern state of Chihuahua. Based on the empirical study it is proposed a causal relationship framework between the FLFP and the development of regions. This paper concludes that women participation in the economy has a significant impact on development; therefore, regions must formulate public policies in order to achieve more opportunities for the incorporation of women into the labor market.

Keywords : female labor force participation; gender; development; regional development; Chihuahua.
