There have been 4500 denouncements made by women who have reported cases of domestic violence and other crimes to Albanian police authorities. This is a figure which has seen an increase compared to a year ago, when this figure was 380.
Although this shows an increase of cases, experts say that the awareness against domestic violence and trust on the institutions is growing too.
These figures were announced today in the meeting of the National Committee for Gender Equality, during which the minister of Social Protection, Ogerta Manastirliu said that last year, there were 5200 women who were employed.
Meanwhile, the deputy Prime Minister, Senida Mesi said that Albania is the first country of the region which has gender quotas. /balkaneu.com/
