Parker, Carla Pederzini); (2) "The Impact of Child Labor and School Dropout on Human Capital: Gender Differences in Mexico" (Felicia Marie Knaul); (3) "Breadwinner versus Caregiver: Labor Force Participation and Sectoral Choice over the Mexican Business Cycle" (Wendy Cunningham); (4) "A Gender Perspective on 'Maquila' Employment and Wages in Mexico" (Susan Fleck); (5) "Explaining Gender Differences in Earnings in the Microenterprise Sector" (Susana M. Sanchez, Jose A. Pagan); (6) "Gender Issues in Workforce Participation and Self-Employment in Rural Mexico" (Jose A. Pagan, Susana M. Sanchez); (7) "Gender, Generation, and Off-Farm Employment on the Mexican 'Ejido'" (Elizabeth Katz); (8) "Welfare of Male and Female Elderly in Mexico: A Comparison" (Susan W.
