  • Alla Kirova
  • Kapka Stoyanova


The equality level of women and men on the labour market and in the social security field is evaluated. Gender differences in the employment rate and profiles are studied. The specific job-seeking behaviour of women and men is analysed, as well as the impact of universal and gender determined subjective and objective barriers on the labour market. The gender situation in the filed of employment is outlined as an indicator of the quality of relevant policies for equal access to the labour market and the existing acts of gender inequality are identified. The horizontal and vertical gender employment segregation, as well as their combined impact on women's and men's employment positions is analysed. Issues concerning equal treatment of gender in the pension security system in Bulgaria are discussed.
