Women’s Rights centre Montenegro

Issue 48 | September 2018

Background

Montenegro was a fiercely patriarchal society in which sons are more valued than daughters. Often, women in the country would decide to have an abortion if prenatal tests indicated they were carrying a girl. This practice changed the demographic of the country to such an extent that a UN report found Montenegro to be in the top tier of countries with an imbalance between males and females. In fact, with a population of 620,000, it is estimated that the country is short of 3,000 women reproductive age already and this will get worse with as many as 10,000 more men than women by 2025.
