The equality of chances is a topic which is underlying an extended research now-a-days and there are a lot of unanswered questions in this field. This concerns problems both of local and trans-regional importance, problems which can be viewed both at national and international level. Therefore, after reviewing literature on women’s chances to participate in the activities of business and other organizations, the paper supports theory through an empirical research which was conducted about the policy of advancing women and integrating them in the power structure and in decision-making in public administration. Research was done in Israel and examined the application of the Local Authorities Law on the Appointment of Mayoral Advisors on the status of Women. The focus is on an examination of the operation and activities of the advisors as agents of change. The results of the research can have implications for other countries dealing with different aspects of gender equality problems.
