TIRANA, May 23
A recent study from the International Labor Organization (ILO) regarding Albania, shows that women are paid the wage as men, (same happens in Bosnia and Herzegovina). For the employees, in general, this gap rises up to 10%, the 7th lowest rate in Europe, even though the majority of graduates in the university are women.
The results are the latest publication of ILO regarding the women in business and management. The research shows also that in Albania only 23% of women are in leading positions. This is one of the lowest rates in Europe. There are only 5 European countries that have rates lower than Albania, two of them are its neighboring countries, Montenegro and North Macedonia.
A recent publication from the National Institute of Statistics (INSTAT) showed that Albanian women are the majority of graduates in the fields of medicine, education, economy, law, human sciences, natural sciences, etc.
Also, according to ILO, Albania is the only country in Europe with the highest rate (50%) of women who graduated in science, technology, engineering, and math. In previous years, it was 32%, below the rate of other European countries.
