The net of civic associations Social Watch created the alternative indicators for measurement of situation development within equality of males and females (GEI – Gender Equity Index) and satisfying of basic human needs (BCI – Basic Capability Index). This paper is devoted to gender inequity, i. e. education, socioeconomic standing and share of authority. The primary attention is devoted to the education, let us say tertiary education. The questions of tertiary education are solved not only from the global view, but also from the national view, i. e. from the view of the Czech Republic. Within this Gender Equity Index dimension is our republic in the front places of the imaginary rank, within the remaining two dimensions there is not the situation so positive and it is necessary to find any solution leading to the improvement of the current position, preferably in the near future. The last part of this paper is devoted to the research realized within the Technical University of Liberec: during the academic years 2004/2005 – 2007/2008 survey of earnings expectations was undertaken. First year students (Technical University of Liberec, University of Economics Prague, University of Pardubice, University of Huddersfield Business School -UK) were surveyed. The result of the surveys of Czech and British students show that students are very well aware of their possible (expected) earnings. Although the results of this study show a striking similarity between student perceptions in the Czech Republic (GEI 69) and United Kingdom (GEI 75), this does not automatically mean that the same will be true in other countries.
