Malta’s Number Of Female Bosses Surpass EU’s Average

Female empowerment!



More Maltese workers now have female immediate bosses than in 2010, with the figure increasing from 19% to 36%, according to a survey by Eurofound.


The figure is just one point above the EU average of 35%. In 2010, less than a fifth of Maltese workers had female bosses, whereas now 46% of female workers and 22% of male workers have a female boss.


Only 22% of Maltese workers said they worked in gender-balanced workplaces, with 37% saying the majority of workers were women and 41% reporting that the majority were men. The survey also showed persistent gender segregation in workplaces, calling for efforts to dismantle limiting stereotypes.
