32 percent of Romanian managers are women and their share in the total employment is 44 percent, according to Eurostat.

In  2013  across  the  EU  member  states,  women  were  particularly  under-represented  among  managers  in  Luxembourg  (while accounting for 44 percent of employed persons,  16 percent  of managers are women),  Cyprus  (48 percent vs. 19 percent), the Netherlands (47 percent vs. 25 percent) and Croatia (46 percent vs. 25 percent).In contrast, the share of female managers was more representative of the proportion of women in total employment in Hungary (the share of women was 46 percent among employed persons and 41 percent among managers), Latvia (51 percent and 44 percent) and Poland (45 percent and 38 percent).

In Romania, most women (64 percent) are clerical support workers, 61 percent are service and sales workers and 21 percent are craft and related trades workers.

Employment rate in Romania was in 2013 of 71.6 percent males vs. 56.2 percent females in full time jobs and of 8.1 percent males vs. 9 percent females in part time jobs.

Also, in 2013, the gender pay gap stood at 16.4 percent in the European Union, ranging from less than 5 percent in Slovenia to more than 20 percent in Estonia, Austria, the Czech Republic and Germany.  Gender pay gap was less than 10 percent in Slovenia (3.2 percent), Malta (5.1 percent), Poland (6.4 percent), Italy (7.3 percent), Croatia (7.4 percent), Luxembourg (8.6 percent), Romania (9.1 percent against. 8.5 percent in 2008) and Belgium (9.8 percent).

At the opposite  end  of  the  scale,  the  gender  pay  gap  was  over  20%  in  Estonia  (29.9%),  Austria  (23.0%),  the  Czech Republic (22.1%) and Germany (21.6%).

Compared  to  2008,  gender  pay  gap  dropped  in  2013  in  the  majority of EU member  states.
