Gender Equality on Labor Market. Why is this necessary? The need and requirement of equal opportunities, equal treatment, and equality between women and men is a fundamental fact accepted by Slovakia and the European Union today. Laws and regulations regulate compliance with these requirements in all areas of society. However, the reality is very different from the regulations on paper. The disadvantaged position of women in the labor market, the power of stereotypes and prejudices in education, the existence of domestic violence are just some of the many areas that need help. Gender differences in the labor market remain the most visible evidence of inequality between men and women in our society. Despite laws to ensure non-discrimination and equal treatment, analyzes and statistics show that women continue to be at disadvantage in access to employment and career development.
