Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is in the process of acceding to the European Union (EU) and over the past years has successfully set up the legislative and policy framework for gender equality. It is a signatory to a number of important and binding international documents, which guarantee the equality of men and women and prohibit gender-based discrimination. Yet despite the progress that has been made to establish a legal and policy framework for the advancement of women’s rights and gender equality, inequalities are pervasive. In 2016, BiH ranked 81st out of 188 countries in the Gender Inequality Index, indicating very slow and limited progress since 2010. Traditional patriarchal attitudes are prominent, gender inequalities are present in all spheres of social and economic life, and violence against women is still widespread. The current political and institutional set up of BiH society is characterized by social differentiation among citizens, such as along ethnic and religious divisions, minority status, and age, regional and rural-urban differences, including exposure to environmental risk. Inequality between women and men is most persistent, cuts across all social strata, and interlinks with other inequalities and social, political, and economic exclusion.
