Fathers And Mothers Should Take Equal Care Of Their Children

Last year, the Croatian Business Club encouraged the use of parental leave by fathers as a contribution to fostering gender awareness

A large body of research shows that economic dependence contributes to violence in a relationship, and that the degree of economic dependence of women on men is higher than the opposite. But civil society organisations have noticeably raised the level of awareness of gender equality in the general population: while women have been informed about the possibility of achieving economic independence, men have been taught about the benefits of living in a gender-balanced environment. These activities seem to have intensified in the last decade, which is probably one of the reasons why women have made considerable progress in economic decision-making.

Civil society organisations have made major contributions to promoting women’s equality and economic independence

At the same time, it is becoming more common in companies for women and men to be equally represented both in the staff and in top management. This should eventually lead to equal pay for the same qualifications and jobs.

The fact that we are involved in many projects that promote gender equality, such as this last year’s project to encourage the use of parental leave by fathers, shows that members of the Croatian Business Club are gender-aware.
