Discrimination With A Ribbon

The differences between women and men are equally present, they are just less visible and more subtly expressed, and prejudices are everywhere among us

There are certainly shifts in gender balance, but I would say that they are still small and insufficient and that everything depends on which part of society you look at, whether it is women in companies or women who do unregistered jobs, those who work illegally and have no employment rights. There are also differences depending on whether you are in a city or a village, a type of profession, a part of Serbia.

The most vulnerable are women who work in the grey economy, who are the least visible and in the most unenviable position

Awareness of the differences and the opportunity to put yourself in the “other person’s shoes”, in this case the other woman, is not at an appropriate level. Differences still exist, and now on a much more subtle and hidden level than before, where they were obvious in all parts of society. Prejudices still exist, and we have a long way to go, and recent decades have not been too much in our favour.
