Gender discrimination as an issue of Serbian society​

Discrimination is something we have been facing throughout the history of humankind, and gender discrimination is its most common form. We face it every day, without even being aware of it.

State Secretary within the Ministry of Youth and Sports of the Government of Serbia, Darko Stanic, had an unseemly reaction at the conference on gender stereotypes, organized by nongovernmental organization "Atina", who reported it promptly.

As noted by this organization, Stanic hit his colleague's gluteus with papers at the conference organized to present the analysis on gender stereotypes and gender-based violence.

"Upon the completion of his speech and while leaving the conference, State Secretary has, in front of all the participants hit his colleague's gluteus with documents he was holding", noted "Atina" in a complaint addressed to the Minister of Youth and Sports Vanja Udovicic.

In addition to that, Darko Stanic made inappropriate comments on women drivers.

Commissioner for the Protection of Equality, Brankica Jankovic; representative of NGO "Atina", Jelena Hrnjak; and Jovana Ruzicic, Director of the Center for Moms, spoke on the topic of gender discrimination in a TV talk-show "150 minuta" on Prva Television.
