The National Report on the Status of Women and Gender Equality (NRSWGE) in Albania is the first national report serves as the substantive basis to analyse the overall situation of women and men in Albania. Nine policy areas of key importance to gender equality are covered: national development indicators, demographics, legal frameworks and institutional mechanisms, health, education, work, entrepreneurship and property rights, social policies and social services, political representation and participation, and domestic violence. It tries to answer to two critical questions: Are women better now compared to 10 years ago? How are women positioned compared to men in society?
