Stakes and Challenges of Business Women on the Romanian Labour Market


  • Adina Popovici Bărbulescu

    () (West University of Timișoara, Romania)


In the market economy, especially in the former communist countries that joined the European Union, including Romania, the concepts of competition, skill and vision to work seem to raise from the anonymity a new category of human resources of the globalized Romania: business women. The research questions are the following: - What are the stakes for business women in Romania? - What are the challenges for business women in Romania? To answer these research questions, we used as research methods the analysis and synthesis and conducted a reflection type study. For more than 20 years since the adoption by the European Union of the legislation promoting equal opportunities, the European management and the Romanian management have still remained male enclaves.
