Abstract: The article is rising up from the Gender stereotypes connected to the top positions of the women involved in the labour market internationally. Four factors that have the main impact on the gender differences were analysed (education, employment, poverty, pay gap and representation in leading positions) through the quantitative analysis for the selected countries of EU in 2016. Although women have in the EU average higher education levels than men, the average gender pay gap is up to 16.1% and more females than males are at risk of poverty or social exclusion in all of the examined countries.

Keywords: woman, leading position, European Union, gender gap
