The Committee states that Italy violated women’s rights due to the country’s insufficient measurable progress in promoting equal pay for equal work.

According to the latest report by the European Committee of Social Rights (Ceds) Italian women are not enabled to access the same opportunities as men in the labour market, especially for salary issues.

The Committee states that Italy violated women’s rights due to the country’s insufficient measurable progress in promoting equal pay for equal work.

Those countries that allowed Ceds’ accessment on the correct applicability of the European Social Charter – following many organizations’ compliants – are Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, the Nederlands, Norway, Slovenia and Sweden.

Except from Sweden, the Committee has rejected all the other countries because in one way or another they are violating women’s rights. The problem is not the law – all those countries have a legislation that recognizes the right to equal pay for for equal work – but the abscence of appropriate actions to promote the right of women to enjoy equal opportunities in the labour market.
