Title: Maternal Mortality and Women's Political Participation
Speaker: Joseph Flavian Gomes, Economics of School of Louvain
Date: Friday, 18th September, 2020
Time: 4 pm (unusual time)
Venue: Webinar
Abstract: We show that large declines in maternal mortality can be achieved by raising women's political participation. We estimate that the recent wave of quotas for women in parliament in low income countries has resulted in a 9 to 12% decline in maternal mortality. Among mechanisms are that gender quotas lead to an 8 to 10% increase in skilled birth attendance, a 6 to 12% increase in prenatal care utilization and a 4 to 11% decrease in birth rates.
