dc.description.abstractr don't see gender equality in everyday life but some of us are aware of it and some not. It all depends on accepting dominant social values, norms, and gender roles, as well as fitting into gender stereotypes and expectations that society prescribes for women and men. People who don't fit with traditional norms are ostracized. (Natalija Petric, human rights activist and lawyer, July 9, 2013) Gender equality exists in Bosnia 'and Herzegovina. It can be measured through various aspects and I don't think we are the worst country. We did a lot of things in the last ten years and in some areas men and women are equal now, such as education, judiciary, armed forces and employment. (Adnan Kadribasic, a senior legal advisor with the State Agency for Gender Equality, July 7, 2013)
