Abstract

This paper aims to analyze the level of progress that Romania made towards ensuring gender equality after adoption in the European Union of the Strategy of Equality between Women and Men. The theoretical framework that I am going to use is that of the capabilities approach. The question that what I want to answer to in this paper is the following: are Romanian women able to be and to do according their own reasoning. What I plan to analyze is (1) if Romania has made any progress towards gender equality and if it is concordance with the Strategy of Equality Between Women and Men, by acting accordingly to the key direction mentioned and toward the objectives set by the Strategy and (2) how the level of concordance with the Strategy contributes to ensure women’s capabilities.

Keywords: capabilities, gender equality, European Union, Nussbaum, care
