Other problems like discrimination in various aspects like gender, race, and religious beliefs, integration into society of disabled and convicted persons released from prisons, migration processes, lack of employment, versatile work, view, rethinking of values, eventually, the period of economic crisis change viewpoint regarding most of the things mentioned. In Lithuania gender discrimination is forbidden by law, therefore some opinions happen to be that no problems in gender discrimination exist. However, despite legislative progress a number of indicators show that a considerable gap between formal and real gender equality is prevailing. In other words, gender equality de jure and de facto are not identical in Lithuania.
