The paper analyses the changes of the perceptions of political masculinities from the last century. The paper departs at the turn of the last century when women were forbidden to participate in political association, yet small percentage of them had the right to vote on municipal and regional level. Despite the fact that politics has been almost completely men’s world and specific form of hegemonic masculinity developed, empirical evidence show that there were not one but several forms of masculinity. As femininity, masculinity is also historical constructed as well and as such subjected to changes. The paper traces the changes in political masculinities in Slovenia in the context of the contemporary research of high level politicians in Slovenia. The research is based on semi-structured interviews with politicians in which they reflect their way of making politics, development of their political career, their attitude toward politics as profession, their attitude towards relationship between private and public, etc. Special attention has been brought to the questions what are the constants and what are new developments among political masculinities in Slovenia from the last century; and to the questions if, when, how much and under which influences hegemonic masculinity in politics has been transformed in Slovenia in the last decades

Research shows that the existing structuring of the political field enables or permits entrance especially to single women and women without children. In this context the author presented the results of empirical research on being single, primarily value and normative standpoints of single women and men, and how they deal with the desire to have children. Men, that is the group which predominantly shape the political field, to a greater extent than women express views in line with the ideology of the traditional family. For a higher entrance of (different) women in politics, it would be necessary to change the current organization and methods of work in politics.
