Gender equality is a necessary prerequisite for
democratization of our society, but also an essential prerequisite for proving
our maturity in the application of European principles and values. SNP CG does
not want gender equality to be reduced to linguistic forms and declarative
dedication, but to truly promote the role of women and the importance of their
participation in social engagements. We insist on the full social inclusion of
women, valorization of their participation on equal basis with men, insist on
equal terms of employment and exercise of all other economic and social rights.
We are committed to equal participation of women in key positions for making
important political and economic decisions, without neglecting the fact that the
women are a majority population in Montenegro.
In order to make a woman in Montenegro be fully realized in
her family, profession or community, it is necessary to change the view of
traditional one-sided role of women in our society through a systematic
promotion of adequate participation of women in public, political, cultural and
economic life of our country encouraged by the state’s measures. It is therefore
necessary to modify the employment policy, labor policy, pension and other
policies, which will define the legal obligations of the state and employers
against women, respecting the principles of affirmative action and European
standards in the policy of promoting and achieving gender equality.
