Abstract:This research aims at understanding the current position of Serbian women in leadership roles, regarding their position in the labor market, cultural factors and barriers, and making a cross-cultural comparison between Serbia and the Netherlands. First, existing literature was analyzed. Then the current position in Serbia was studied by obtaining data through interviews with five Serbian women. Analysis of the data shows that Serbian women are currently relatively well established in the labor market. Factors like the patriarchal system seem to still play a big role but are not perceived as a barrier by most women. Serbian women play most achievements and opportunities off on their own characteristics, instead of gender-related factors. Comparing the situation in both countries, it appeared that Serbia and the Netherlands took different paths and have established a different normal, but in the end barely differentiate on the matter of the position of women in leadership roles.
