Working for Women in Guatemala

Meet Magdalena Leon, an information liaison for the Carter Center's Global Access to Information Program, who travels throughout her community in Guatemala to help women improve their lives.

In particular, access to information:

- empowers women to make more effective decisions, for example with relation to education, crop production, land ownership, and health care;
- enables women to understand and exercise their full range of rights;
- helps women to participate more fully in public life;
- is critical for holding government and service providers accountable;
- bridges gender gaps and helps to shift power in decision-making processes; and
- can link women with the needed resources for achieving economic empowerment.
