  3. Abstract:
    Although the majority of democratic States recognise equality of the opportunity between female and male, it seems that tradition is much more than a mere psycho-social barrier. From this perspective, statistics show that the female is still located in a inferior position to the male. There is still a preference for the occupation of jobs with more poorly paid female and a visible discrimination in terms of remuneration on similar posts. It is true that research had positively evaluated trends, appreciing until recently that will be necessary  about 100 years to close the global gender gap. But the latest data indicate on the contrary, an increase in the gap between male and female. The most recent Global Gender GAP report, which tracks progress on gender equality, points out that progress in gender equality has been uneven over the last few years, and in some areas there are still major obstacles. According to data presented by the World Economic Forum, Romanian it ranks last in this respect in UE-28 (ranked 72th in the world). It seems that the lack of a functional social protection system remains for our country the main generator of gender inequality, with female generally having to stay at home to care/support the older/younger members of the family. The present article seeks to achieve from this last perspective a short statistical portraiture of the gender inequalities in Romania, seeking rather to issue than to try to find an explanatory response.
