Gender in the South Caucasus : a snapshot of key issues and indicators (English)

Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia have made progress in many gender-related aspects in the past decade and show outcomes that are in some cases an improvement over the regional Europe and Central Asia (ECA) average. Despite this progress, gender disparities remain in endowments (demographics and education), access to economic opportunities (labor markets) and women’s voice in the South Caucasus countries. One of the most salient gender issues in the South Caucasus is that of ‘missing women’. Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia have a high sex imbalance at birth, with an average of 14 percent more male births than female births (highest in Azerbaijan at 17 percent). Sex ratios have been increasing since the 1990s in the South Caucasus, while staying stable in neighboring countries.
