    Men and women in Croatia are equal before the law in all respects. The constitution of Croatia was amended in 2001 to include gender equality among the highest values of the constitutional order. Furthermore, the Parliament has enacted several laws to protect women against discrimination and effectively set out a policy of equal opportunities for men and women. However, systematic implementation of these laws is weak. For example, women in Croatia are paid significantly less than men with similar qualifications. Furthermore, concerns remain regarding violence against women, but the government is working to reduce its prevalence throughout the country.

    Croatia ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in 1992, and the Optional Protocol on violence against women in 2001. The country is a member of the Council of Europe and ratified the European Convention on Human Rights in 1997.
