Study on the situation of Romani women and girls in the Republic of Moldova (2014)

The report appearing under this cover complements the 2013 report on the situation of Roma in the Republic of Moldova by examining in particular the situation of Romani women and girls. According to the report, while obstacles to access basic services, including education, are significant for both Romani girls and boys, some aspects are clearly gendered. Romani girls are particularly vulnerable to school drop out and low educational attainment, due to the role many are required to play in their family. Early marriage remains an issue in some communities.
