Women make up 44% of the working population.

Women will spend at least 8 years of their lives in household chores.

Montenegro does not have accurate statistics on women's entrepreneurship.

Citizens believe that women are more often discriminated against in the labor market.

GDP per capita is € 6,496 for women and € 8,571 for men.

In the first three months of the pandemic, women earned € 122.3 million in cash equivalent of the value of unpaid care and domestic work.

Only 20% of women are in management positions in companies.

Only 30% of women work in the highest paid jobs.

More than half of the citizens think that it is best for a woman to dedicate herself to her family and a man to earn money.

For a gender pay gap of 16%, women could buy an apartment of at least 31,000 euros.

Institutions generally do not keep gender-disaggregated statistics, and do not integrate gender aspects into policies, although they are legally obliged.

If we continue at this pace, it will take us 257 years to close the economic gap.

Rural women will work in unpaid jobs up to 15 years.

Women contribute to the GDP of Montenegro with about 2.038 billion euros or 44% of GDP (2018).
