This paper elaborates the main findings from a survey undertaken in the line of evaluating the role of women working in tourism and hospitality in Macedonia. Moreover, the paper intends to assess the current position of women in tourism and to detect the most profound obstacles for their entrepreneurial advancement in tourism sector. To that purpose, a self-administrated questionnaire was distributed among managers and employees working in travel agencies and tourism service facilities in several locations in Macedonia. While women share the same view with men concerning many investigated issues, their perception towards participation of women entrepreneurs in tourism in Macedonia strongly differs. So, while man did not have unique attitude, women’s perception is that their participation in tourism entrepreneurship is moderate and needs to be improved. Furthermore, the paper outlines the specific problems that women are faced with when being employed in tourism and hospitality sector in Macedonia. The contribution of this paper lies in the fact that enriches poorly developed academic work in Macedonia addressing this issue.
