Woman and University in Montenegro

Mirjana Popović


This paper aims to highlight the fact that participation of women in Montenegrin higher education has been on the rise, both in the sense of enrolment of young women at universities, as well as their involvement in teaching and research. The number of women in positions of associate and full professors at the University of Montenegro is still low considering the number of enrolled and graduate female students, as well as a high percentage of female teaching assistants who form the basis of the university’s organization structure. Bearing in mind the existing patriarchal patterns, transmitted through the socialization process within the primary social groups, women still choose colleges that “fit” their “feminine nature”. When choosing a college or a career path, the principle of positive discrimination is what drives the behaviour of women. In Montenegro the family roles have not yet been arranged according to a principle of egalitarianism, which entails an equal involvement of men in the performance of family activities, such as assistance with housework and the upbringing of children.
