“Ombudsman proposed to reduce retirement age for women,” was reflected in the report of the Ombudsperson on the protection of human rights in Azerbaijan for 2022, APA reports.

It was noted in the document that taking into account the role of women in Azerbaijani society and the family, and the responsibility that falls on them due to family concerns, it is not appropriate to gradually increase the retirement age of working women to 65 years by July 1, 2027. In this regard, there is a need to reduce the retirement age of women.
