The article attempts to answer the question related to if, and if so then in what ways does gender differentiate political participation. The results of studies cited in the article lead to a conclusion that, in fact, when it comes to current so-called conventional frameworks of political activity, Polish males and females do not differ substantially. Furthermore, based on the studies, it is possible to claim that the socio-demographic image of men and women particularly active in the sphere of politics (sitting members of parliament) is also very similar. Differences are in this case related to personal characteristics and cultural capital which men and women of the parliament bring to the table. Both of these aspects are largely similar or comparable, however, within the style of doing politics typical for most women, the resources which men also possess are employed with different intensity.
