In Montenegro, women are slightly more numerous than men, and they make up 50.5% of the population according the latest research. Also, now more than ever, women are highly educated and more often they achieve bachelor, specialist or master’s degree of educational level. However, it is not so common for a woman in Montenegro to hold a high-paid managerial position. Instead, positions of power and status are traditionally held by men. Although more numerous in our public administration, women do not hold decision-making positions, and the higher we go on the hierarchical ladder, both on national and local level, the fewer women there are.
