In the first section the different theoretical approaches and research results are discussed on political participation of women in developed democracies predominantly in Anglo-Saxon areas. The impact of social, political, psychological and cultural factors on women's participation in political life and the obstacles that women face in their political career. Especially, the functioning of political parties and their impact in promoting the nomination of women to political office are considered. The notion of representation of women's interests is one of the crucial problem that engages the attention of researchers in this area. The second part of the text focuses on the situation in Serbia during the period of social transition after the Milosevic era, and the results of gender policies in practice. Based on the statistical data and the findings of empirical research the model of political participation of women in Serbia is reconstructed, with special emphasis on women's participation in parliamentary life and in work of political parties. The obstacles for women’s political activity are analyzed and the problems and possible solutions in the domain of descriptive and substantive representation of women in the assembly are indicated.
