Gender and Vulnerability to Bribery in Mexico
Ornelas Cruz, Ana Paulina
In recent years, growing attention has been paid to the relationship between gender and bribery.Research has found that, given the traditional social construction of gender roles, men are morelikely to be targeted for economic bribery, while women are disproportionately affected byalternative forms of exploitation such as sextortion. My findings support this conclusion. Usingindividual-level survey data from the 2018/2019 AmericasBarometer survey, in a series of linearprobability models, I find that men in Mexico are more likely than women to be targets of economicbribery. This relationship may reflect the fact that men tend to have higher levels of participationin the workforce and greater earning capacity than women.
