As a developing country, importance of women in Azerbaijan has been dramatically increased over the course of the past few years. Women in Azerbaijan have earned a lot of rights that they never had before which plays a big role of westernization of Azerbaijan. Azeri women participate in labour force, they can take power in the government, they have gained equal access to education and health services as men. However, the violence against women is still a problem in Azerbaijan despite their best efforts on reducing it. This essay will focus on the past/current inequality between women and men in Azerbaijan in terms of labour participation, health and education services and violence against women.

Azeri women’s participation in labour force has been growing fast as they are developing.Between 2003 and 2008, employment of women has seen a massive growth by 606.000 people or 43% (Klaveren, 2009). Due to the rising participation of women in the labour force, the pay for the men decreased by 13% while the pay for the women increased from 39.5% to 43.2% in 5 years. A study that was done by ILO Laborsta in 2008 proves that there are quite noticeable wage differences between women and men. Men seem to be earning more than women in so-called “job for men” like mining, agriculture, fishing and etc. On the other hand, retail or some wholesale jobs are more likely
to pay more to women as they are called “jobs for women”(Klaveren).
Another study that was done in Azerbaijan asking about the job attitudes, 63% of the Azeri population pointed at men for being better at business and political related jobs than women. As of the date 11th of July, 2012 19 out of 125
members of the parliament are women while the 59% of the population think that this number is less than what it should be and 83% of the population said that they would vote for a female candidate in the next elections (Severine Muller). What keeps Azerbaijan’s gender inequality rates in the labour force slightly lower than average is the thought that “men should work and get bread for the family while the women stay at home, cook and look after children”. But overall, the unemployment rates for women in Azerbaijan are way higher than men.

In first or second world countries, education and health are usually equally provided to both women and men. During Azerbaijan’s development, the inequality in education and health has dropped dramatically. Education became mandatory in Azerbaijan for both boys and girls which brought the primary/secondary enrollment rates all the way up to almost hundred percent. When it comes to post secondary, men (23%) tend to have more bachelor degrees than women (16%) (Severina muller).
