Summary/Abstract: Contemporary societies are characterised by significant spatial mobility of people, but also goods, capitals and ideas. Mobility of people has various forms (from international to local, from permanent to daily commuting, travel and tourism, etc.). Nevertheless, mobility is still characterised by selectivity which shapes different practices of mobility for individuals and groups, according to the macro, mezzo and micro factors. Numerous sociological and demographic references point out on differences in mobility of men and women. This regards to daily commuting as well. Concepts of gender regimes and gender contracts are standard foundations for the explanation of such variations. Accordingly, we have analyzed daily commuting of female population in Vojvodina. We have argued that women are less commuting than man. Also, we have argued that there are differences in: a) gendered daily commuting practices according to the settlement type, b) daily commuting practices of active women and female pupils/students and c) that there is an increase of female daily commuting practice in comparison to previous census. The assumptions have been analyzed based on the census results in 2002 and 2011.
