Gender Pay Gap in Georgia

Initiative: Union Sapari

Place: Tbilisi

Period: 2018-2019

Union Sapari has long been dedicated to questions about the position of women in Georgian society, gender-based discrimination, and domestic and economic violence against women.

As part of its current campaign, Sapari highlights the difference between how much men and women are paid for the same work (the gender pay gap), which, according to available data, currently stands at 35% in Georgia. The campaign aims to enforce an obligation in Georgian legislation for large employers to provide the Statistical Office with data on the employment of women and men, including information on their remuneration. This is the first important step on the way to tackling the problem of unequal pay based on gender.
