Employment and Gender in Georgia
Women make up the majority of Georgia’s economically inactive population, have lower-paid jobs and are underrepresented in the formal employment sector. This issue brief explores the obstacles to women’s economic participation and whether the existing employment structure considers women’s interests.
This brief was developed by UN Women Georgia Country Office in the framework of the UN Women projects “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the South Caucasus” funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) and “Good Governance for Gender Equality in Georgia” supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
