Georgia’s Public Defender Nino Lomjaria urges for the launch of discussions about the difference in salaries between men and women and welcomes the campaign of Women’s Movement.
The office of Georgian Public Defender says that there is no methodology in Georgia based on which equal labor charge will be determined. Also, the measures carried out by the state are insufficient with respect to women’s economic strengthening and improvement of their labor rights.
According to the National Bureau of Statistics, the difference in the amount of salary on gender ground is high and equals to 36%. In 2018, based on the Global Index of Gender Equality, Georgia moved to the 69th place from 54 among 149 countries of the world.
