  • Great presentation. Unfortunately in Romania, the gap increased because there is a segregation in the occupational level and in fact all the austerity measures that were taken by the Government affected mainly the budgetary employees and here the majority are women. We hope that in few months the new laws to reflect more this quest for equality between men and women. Thank you for sharing the presentation with Us. Ecaterina
