Role of Women in Romanian Fisheries
AbstractThe paper presents the findings of a survey on the presence and role of women in fisheries in Romania, as part of a study conducted in 2018 for the European Union’s Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME). The field work carried out for this study consisted of face to face or phone interviews, focus group disscussions and email exchanges. The conclusions regarding the situation of women in Romanian fisheries are the same as in the general context, maintaining women’s vulnerability to the labor market (including fisheries). This results from the occurrence and perpetuation of gender discrimination through the existence of a gender pay gap, the imbalance between personal, family and work life, the lack of representation of women in the decision making process and place in managerial positions, as well as situations such as harassment at work, violation of legal rights of women returning from maternity leave and parental leave.
