The authors of this book are critical to gender regimes in the fields of education, work, family life and politics. They are convinced that women and men are faced with different structural opportunities and barriers. Women are faced with significantly less chances to transform and transfer their cultural and social capital into a political one.

This volume offers a new view on gender structuring in contemporary Slovenia and the persistence of the gender order - produced and reproduced through gender regimes in education, work, family life and politics. With a focus on the low presence of women in politics, the study analyses empirical data, mapping structural changes, delays of changes and the persistence of existing social structures over several decades. It appears that the choices individuals make in their lives are made in a specific social context of structural opportunities and obstacles. As such, gender difference is first socially produced and later universally used for justification of that stratification.
