Summary/Abstract: Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina in relation to the implementation of the undertaken international documents in this field are pointed out. Particular attention is paid to the analysis of the reports of competent ministries, namely those data that lead to conclusions about gender representation, that is, implemented principles of gender equality in different segments of public policies “which are reduced to governmental choice and top-to- bottom approaches”. The aim is to point out emerging issues, to make them visible, because the authors are of the legal profession, so with professional and pedagogical responsibility they tend to expose dilemmas more in the application than in the nomotechnical process of passing the laws, strategies and action plans related to the implementation of gender equality in different segments, especially in public policies, the non-application of which leads to discrimination. The authors also refer to the phenomenon of pink washing. Different methodological procedures were applied in the paper: historical law, comparative law, as well as case analysis.
