24 first grade students of the leader-girls school were given the task – conducting social research to study condition of the IDP girls in the cities, where they live (mainly inquiry with 10 girls and in-depth interview with three women, who are considered as leaders).

By the dates of June 30, participants of leader-girls school conducted inquiry for 180 IDP girls from Abkhazia, and in-depth interviews with 54 leader women. Majority of IDP girls have partly information regarding women leadership, they need assistance for showing their possibilities.

Most of IDP girls have desire to solve conflicts in a peaceful way, majority of them do not consider themselves as a leader. They think that the others must take part in public activities and the others must solve problems, as they have no such skills.

Low self-evaluation of the girls is an influence of those stereotypes, by which leadership is not their business, problems must be solved by the men and they must be the leaders in all spheres. The girls do not think to show their leader skills, though most of them were glad to take part in the inquiry and is ready to be involved in the similar activities.

In-depth interviews with the girls showed that they have to overstep Georgian stereotypes regarding the fact that woman is a housewife and a man is a leader while fulfilling their possibilities.

By the opinion of the respondents, overcoming the barrier is possible by formatting awareness of the society, settling of correct visions regarding possibilities of women.

The respondents think that woman can do anything in case of will even better than man.

They think that status of leader woman is not easily acceptable by the society with the opinion that women are less clever. Sometimes the men are afraid of leader women as they think that will be hidden under their shadow.

Leader women think that a woman must recognize her equality with the men without psychological limitations. Otherwise equality will not be reached. Existing inequality will be badly returned to the society.

Meeting held with the Chairperson of the city organization of Christian-democratic Movement George Shavgulidze, within the framework of the research of Fund "Sukhumi” showed quite interesting picture about the situation in parties and society regarding political status of women.

"I was a witness of the situation in the Parliament reception where people try to make an appointment with parliamentarians, make phone calls on vital issues. Imagine that people call oftener to women-parliamentarians, placing their hope on them”.

"Human’s psyche gets tired most of all with monotony. Monotony in politics from the point of view of gender is also boring”.

"Increase of women’s representation in politics is much dependent on men. First of all men should perceive that it’s necessary and important for the country”.

Christian-democrats prove this: candidature of Inga Grigolia is submitted by them on post of the chairperson of local self-government of Tbilisi.
