One of the most important factors for a state to acquire a satisfying level of development is the participation of its women in the social life of the country. Women not only play a significant role in social and political development of a country but also can increase the rate of economic development and social equity. Therefore, the participation of women in political and social organizations and playing roles equitable to those of men is a necessity in the current world and may facilitate social development. Studying the increase in the level of Iranian women\'s participation in different socio-political structures, this article seeks to first understand the main obstacles in this process and secondly shed light on the differences between men and women in acquiring governmental positions. To do this, we study the results of women job assessment in Imam Khomeini International University as an example of a governmental organization. This article also tends to find out why, in spite of the presence of highly educated women with adequate eligibilities according to the annual assessment of the performance of university directors, they still fail to occupy management positions and have an active participation in high levels of educational and executive decision making of the university.
