The role of women has changed over the course of history. The original role of the woman was to take care of the household and the family, but this progressed over time. Women are almost homogeneous with men because of their increased inclusion in the labor market and better working conditions. There is still discrimination in the employment of women due to the possibility of maternity, but discrimination is slightly mitigated by the Equal Opportunities Act, which aims to improve the position of women and create equal opportunities for women and men in political, economic, social, educational and other areas of social life. The purpose of the thesis is to find out what problems young women face in joining the labor market in Slovenia and Austria and what are the main differences between the inclusion in both countries. The aim of this thesis is to determine which country has a lower unemployment rate, or which country has better conditions in including younger women and young people in general into the labor market. The unemployment rate of young people is much higher than in neighboring Austria. The key difference between Slovenia and Austria is that Austria has more in number and more extensive programs with which it wants to reduce the number of unemployed young people. Since there are various forms of employment on the labor market, which allow for lower social and financial stability, women later decide to start a family.
