Croatian National Television
prime time program “Tema dana” was dedicated to women. Diana Kobas Deskovic,
CEO of MAMFORCE spoke about the lack of awareness regarding the problem of
gender inequality, along with the lack of willingness to deal with the problem.
Pregnancy and motherhood are big obstacles for women because of job insecurity
and a lack of flexible working hours schemes. There are not enough women in
management. Furthermore, women are poorly represented in the media, especially
when talking about economic and political subjects.
What we need are balanced
panel discussions with equal number of men and women, as well as including men
in dealing with the gender inequality problem. We need education, free of
stereotypes which usually make women choose “female jobs”. Lastly, one of the
biggest problems today is violence against women.
