Today, it is said that the participation women’s labor force has been increased. According to the last announced statistics of Turkish Statistical Institute (TSI), the participation of labor force in higher graduates (university) rate is 83.9% in men, 70.7% in women. Although, the numbers indicate a brilliant picture, the problems of women’s labor force are continuing enduringly. Women’s working life is interrupted by discrimination and segregation which made an impression in whole society and pushed them back. This case, especially, is found its counter in top level management in the public institutions. Discrimination and segregation can be seen both in the public sector and private sector. It is thought that discrimination and segregation may be seen lesser in public sector. However it is not true. Maybe these circumstances can be seen in the public sector, especially in the art sector, one of which is very dependent on government’s applications. Due to the fact that the government’s political aspects directly affects the working conditions and managerial positions. While doing this study, it will try to put forward a picture of Ankara State Opera and Ballet (ASOB), if those concepts mentioned (discrimination & segregation) have not occurred in this institution’s top-level management. This study will be analyzed starting with discrimination and segregation concepts why women face some difficulties in working life. Then, it will be examined by the relationship between discrimination and segregation and hegemony and ideology concepts. Consequently, it will try to understand why women entrepreneurship comes in the most important place in ASOB rather than the top managerial positions.
