Albania among European countries that impede women in the labor market

Albania among European countries that impede women in the labor market

 The World Bank points out that in 2018, Albania and seven other European countries apply at least one restriction on women's employment.

According to the report's table, Albania has no quota for women on corporate boards, in City Councils, for seats in the Parliament, while there is a 30% quota on the list of candidates for parliamentary elections and municipal councils (in other states this quota generally ranges from 40 to 50%).

Albania has no incentives (eg funding) for political parties to include women in the list of candidates for parliamentary elections, but even most countries do not have that, with few exceptions such as Bosnia and Croatia in the region.

The WB found that gender gaps create low incomes. Research shows that this may cause up to 15% loss of revenue to developed economies. These losses are significantly higher in developing countries.

In addition, gender legal differences are estimated to impede women's participation in the labor market. The study estimates that for some economies the inequality in per capita income is precisely due to gender inequality. The World Bank claims that many countries may increase the output per capita by discouraging gender barriers in the labor market.

The findings of the World Bank show that laws can affect women's economic equality.

In the United States, for example, women began to obtain patents in the 19th century.

Equal opportunities allow women to make choices that are good for them, their families, and their communities. But equal opportunities at work or business do not exist where gender legal differences are prevalent.

In many countries, legal restrictions restrict women to make economic decisions.

While women's participation in employment and entrepreneurial activities is linked to many factors, World Bank data for 2018 shows how laws and regulations limit women's participation in economic rights.
