||This bachelor thesis summarises position of women in labour market in Slovakia. As a result of various prejudices and stereotypes women bear the so called double burden, meaning their professional and family life. In this thesis we describe the development of women’s labour market in the world, in the European Union and also in Slovakia. We focus on individual indicators of their difficult position and later their comparison with the men’s labour market. We analyse different forms of government support, especially their difficult position considering their responsibilities at home. Moreover we apply to women mainly as mothers. By research analysis of Institute for Public Affairs we will show you the significant differences between different indicators of their economic status.
