Internal migration from village to town could not hold the woman only as a housewife, she was supposed to work outside the family helping the family budget.Technical equipment replaced the heavy physical works, enabled the inclusion of women in the production process. This phenomenon made women economically independent, which long time was considered as the main cause of gender inequality. Today the number of educated women is equated with the number of men, while the number of women in the highest leading or decision-making bodies, municipal or central level remains dim. This paper treats the representation of women in positions defined by gender-based representation such as parliament and municipal councils, and representation of women in decision-making positions that are not related to defined quotas by representation. The results show that there is an extreme imbalance between positions with guaranteed quotas and positions that are not related to gender quotas. Among the many factors, we believe that gender stereotyping continues to confront women with strong forms of discrimination in terms of political advancement, but there aren’t rare cases when women do not show interest in political engagement, especially in high decision-making positions. They are aware that the tops of the state are reachable only through politics.This troubled profession continues to keep away all those who intend justice and meritocracy.
