The Ombudswoman for Gender Equality Višnja Ljubičić on the record low number of women in Parliament

Although she received the mandate of the Ombudsperson for Gender Equality at the end of October, Višnja Ljubičić’s hands are already full. In the Parliament’s newest convocation there is a record low number of women, while, at the same time, the future ministers, especially those prone to sexist remarks, will be kept under scrutiny. Regarding the number of women in the newly elected Parliament, the Ombudswoman pointed out the bad statistics: there are now only 19.8% of women in Parliament, which is the lowest percentage since 2000. She also stressed that the number of 30 women in Parliament will grow slightly after some of the male party colleagues go into the executive branch and send their female colleagues to Parliament.
