    than one female representative, the Geneva Talks

  • gender-pay-gap women earn 49 compared to men
  • labour migration gt often men are working abroad
  • poverty gt female headed households are more
    affected

Conclusions
In sum, Georgia provides widely legislative as
well as enforcement measures for achieving gender
equality and promoting womens rights but there
is still an imbalance between legal norms and
real opportunities for women to enjoy their
rights in the Georgian society.

Conclusions
  • Some possible reasons
  • no real political commitment
  • lack of financial and human resources
  • lack of effective instruments and mechanisms
  • traditional gender roles and stereotypes impede
    women to participate equally in public life
    (multiple burdens due to family responsibilities)

Have always in mind, that.
Gender equality and social justice are
significant preconditions for sustainable peace
