Country/Region Profile

  • Country / Region profile of: Romania

    While Romania does not have a recent history of large-scale conflict per se, it witnessed ethnic conflict between Romanians and the ethnic Hungarian minority in the province of Transylvania in 1990. The Constitution of Romania guarantees women equal rights, but gender discrimination is a problem. While the law does not restrict women's participation in government or politics, societal attitudes presents a significant barrier. In addition, Romani (Roma) women constitute a tremendously deprived category of the Romanian population due to the discrimination and social exclusion they experience as a result of the intersection of race, gender and class. Romania has been ranked 70 out of 136 countries listed on the Global Gender Gap Index (GGI) of 2013 and it ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1982. Romania is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women and children subjected to labour trafficking and women and children subjected to sex trafficking. A number of women's rights organizations work to highlight and address women's issues in Romania today.
