Abstract: This study gives an overview of the current situation of unemployed women in the capitals of Austria and Slovakia, Vienna and Bratislava. The comparison between the capitals shows some common problems, like the continuously growing unemployment rates, but also that despite the geographical closeness, there are significant differences. The unemployment rate in Vienna is the highest of the all Austrian regions, while Bratislava has the lowest unemployment rate from all regions in Slovakia. In Vienna the female unemployment rates are considerably lower than the male unemployment rates, but in Bratislava the unemployment rates show only minimal differences. There are also significant differences in the female labour market regarding the educational and age structures of the unemployed women.

Key Words: Women; Unemployment; Comparison; Vienna; Bratislava; Austria; the Slovak Republic.
