International Women's Day – 8 March – is an occasion to discuss whether men and women in Serbia are equal – and to what extent. According to data, men are more likely to hold leadership positions and earn more.

Data from the Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia (RZS) shows that men are predominantly in leadership positions, as well as in professions traditionally seen as “male,” including the army.

The Statistical Office’s publication entitled “Women and Men in Serbia” also reveals that men are the more dominant group at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts.

In October 2021, the Government of Serbia adopted the Gender Equality Strategy for the period from 2021 to 2030. Issues mentioned in this document include the unequal position of women and men in the labor market and the pay gap between them.
