The Glass Ceiling in the Judiciary in Italy

Time for Equality is working on a thematic file on women in the judiciary in Italy, as a follow-up to the event organised on 30 May 2013 with Judge Paola Di Nicola, author of “La giudice. Una donna in magistratura

Here a foretaste for Italian speakers.

In this short video, Giuseppina Casella, member of CSM – Consiglio Superiore della Magistratura – talks about the presence of women in the judiciary in Italy. Whereas today women account for 46% of judges, a glass ceiling that prevents them from reaching the top levels of judiciary, exists. In CSM, for example, out of 26 members only 2 are women. Ms Casella proposes some strategies to redress gender imbalance, such as positive actions.
