Eliminating gender-based discrimination is one of the important prerequisite for building a fair society; this can be achieved only through the active involvement of the authorities and of each person. Although during recent years there have been positive changes in the relationships between men and women, improving women's situation to some extent, it can be said that discrimination based on social gender was reduced but not eliminated entirely, equality of chances having not been achieved everywhere in the world. This paper aims to analyze the main causes behind the sexual discrimination, identifying, based on existing statistics, the main areas in which it is manifested in particular, as well as to present the main legal issues that prevent this type of discrimination.
