Exposing structural disparities of Romani women

23 Feb 2014

This research paper attempts to address the status of Roma women in various thematic fields such as education, employment, health and housing, when compared with non-Roma women and Roma men. Its primary goal is to encourage policy makers to recognize structural gender inequalities and their ethnic dimensions.

The paper documents inequalities faced by Roma women - as women, and as ethnic minorities - in the areas of education, employment, health and housing. It identifies the sources of these inequalities and reports progress in alleviating ethnic and gender inequalities by comparing the situation in 2011 and 2004.
