The rise of Gender-Role development in Albania.
Albert Einstein has a famous quote, known by everyone in the whole world and the saying goes,
“Before God, we are all equally wise, and equally foolish!”. So when it comes to different
perspectives on Gender-Role development each and every country has their own way of doing
things, therefore no country/culture is the same, that is why in this essay we will be taking a look
on many countries including Kosovo and seeing how they are dealing with this matter. The law
for gender role development as Kosovo Women’s Network (2018) states:
The Constitution broadly guarantees gender equality for men and women, considering
equal opportunities and equal participation of women and men as a fundamental
democratic value. It protects freedom of election and participation.6 Further, it states
that the composition of the Assembly and the civil service shall respect internationally
recognized principles of gender equality.
By law, we see here that in Kosovo not only has this law been enforced but it is also being used
in the country for quite some time now. Kosovo Women’s Network (2018) then goes on to show
that now only is this law being enforced but it is also an asset when it comes to politics “The
Law on General Elections in the Republic of Kosovo foresees a gender quota in the Assembly of
30% and that in each political entity’s candidate list, at least 30% shall be men and at least 30%
shall be women.” meaning that not only are women allowed to vote but also take part in politics
too which just goes to show for a country that has faced war and been through many troubles,
they still have not forgotten to give rights to women as statistics display that “In 2006, 20.78
percent of leading positions were held by women, whereas in 2007 this percentage rose to 22.95
percent” (Kosovo Center for gender Studies 2009).
If we compare the statistics with the rest of the world, we see that Kosovo is not doing very bad.
Based on the World Economic Forum (2020) we see that Iceland, Norway, Finland and Sweden
come first when it comes to the 2020 Global Gender Gap:
Of all 153 countries covered by this year’s report. No country to date has yet achieved
full gender parity. All the top five countries have closed at least 80% of their gaps, and
the best performer (Iceland) has closed 82% of its gap so far.
Albania, has been ranked in 20th place for being the country that has made changes towards
Gender equality, higher than most countries like Serbia, Turkey, Slovenia and many other
civilised countries that are ahead of us lets say when we refer to the economy. We also see here
that no country yet has reached a 100% closed gap in gender equality which just goes to show
that every country is working at their own pace, but for Albania to come 20th (out of 153
