Democracy for Development Institute (D4D) published the report “Women’s inactivity in the labor market: Factors hindering women’s participation in the labor market”. According to the findings, 53.2% of the unemployed women stated that they are not active in the workforce due to family obligations (child care and elderly care). In general, low labor force participation rates along with high unemployment rates are considered as main reasons why women are not active in the workforce in Kosovo.
This research has shown that cultural and social reasons with defined gender roles are the main reasons for not activating women in the labor market. Most respondents think that the main cause of not activating women in the labor market is the patriarchal mentality in our society.
