Croatian Parliament adopted the first Gender Equality Act (GEA) at its 33rd session on July 14 2003. (75 „in favour”, 14 „reserved”). On January 16th 2008 the Constitutional Court abolished Gender Equality Act due to the formal inconsistency with the Croatian Constitution. Gender Equality Act was rated as organic law and it should have been adopted with the majority of all parlamentarians – at least 76. The validity of the first Gender Equality Act ceased on July 15th 2008, when the second GEA was adopted and has ever since been in force. Herewith is an unofficial translation of GEA.
