  18. 18. Equal opportunities between women and men Status and perspectives in Romania
  19. 19. Equal opportunities between women and men • Although Romania has undertaken and implemented the European legislation in the field of gender equality, the differences are still visible. • The Romanian Labor Code adopted in 2003 contains important provisions regarding the discrimination on grounds of sex in the labor market, in accordance with EU standards. • However, the Romanian legal framework in this area is characterized by lack of unity and poor implementation, making the available legal procedures difficult to potential victims of discrimination based on sex. • Although progress has been made in ensuring better implementation of mechanisms designed to combat discrimination in payment, gender differences reported in this area remain almost unchanged compared with 2002.
  20. 20. Equal opportunities between women and men • The lack of a general classification of occupations makes it hard to have a concrete analyze of an effective framework regarding the equal payment of women and men. • The lack of relevant cases brought before national courts with competence in the field of equal payment is a sign to be taken into account, this situation contrasting with the number of cases in the relevant area that are submitted to the European Court of Justice. • The National Agency for Equal Opportunities between Women and Men in Romania receives complaints from people who consider themselves discriminated on the basis of sex. Subsequently, the Agency has only the power to draw up an advisory opinion on the desirability of sanctioning the crime of discrimination. Further, the National Agency will give its advisory opinion to the National Council for Discrimination Combating, which has the power to impose a penalty to the deed in question.
  21. 21. Equal opportunities between women and men • The National Plan on Equal Opportunities for Women and Men in Romania is one of the few documents at government level that uses the concept of “gender mainstreaming”; however, this document contains only a simple reference to this concept. • Following the minimum standards provided in the relevant EU Directives in this area, it is necessary to set up some independent institutions at national level aiming to promote, analyze, monitor and support the equal treatment of men and women. The independence, the autonomy, the financial and human resources of these institutions should be guaranteed; • Budgets must be negotiated and adopted at national level in order to meet the needs of gender equality, which is a tool of controlling the use of government revenues.
  22. 22. The representation at decision making level • Failure in respecting a proportion in elected bodies (Parliament, local councils, county councils, government etc.) • Women remain significantly under-represented in positions of decision-making, particularly regarding the public sector and decision-making positions. • There is a lack of political commitments and strategies to implement specific and consistent policies in the field of violence against women and trafficking in women. • The Government should establish the violence against women as a priority and support financially the public campaigns in this field.
