This work discusses the employment of women in public institutions managing the water sector in Algeria and the causes of their under-representation in decision-making positions. Data collection analysis shows that women form only 15% of the total workforce and they are relatively better represented among middle managers but very few in higher positions (senior managers). The results of the opinion survey among a representative sample of women managers show that nearly two thirds of respondents (61%) find that men are promoted faster than women and 12% of respondents say that being a woman has reduced and decreased their chances of getting a higher position.
