This paper explores the Romanian women influence as political leader over the Romanian economy. The whole research is based on global gender gap index for Romania analyzed on 2013-2018 period. The data was integrated in a linear regression model. The model interpretation findings show that reducing gender gap in Romania could bring an increase on Romanian GDP.  The paper states that this situation is due to a higher emotional intelligence of Romanian women as leaders. They are also characterized by perseverance and conscience. In 2017 Romania made important progress in reducing this gap, but it seems that the world political dimension gap could be closed within 99 years.
