The study aimed at identifying the challenges facing women leaders in educational institutions in the Sultanate of Oman. The problem was posed by the challenges faced by women leaders in assuming senior management positions in educational institutions, women's lack of awareness of their legal rights, and the lack of services that enable them to obtain employment opportunities. The study population consists of all women who hold positions in government education institutions: as general manager, assistant director general, department director, deputy director and department head, in total number of (322) women. The study sample was (202) selected in a simple random way. The researcher designed a questionnaire consisting of (51) paragraphs focused on three axes: personal challenges, organizational challenges, and societal challenges. Using the descriptive analysis method, the findings revealed that the assessment of the challenges faced by female leaders was "medium" for all the study's axes, in this order: organizational and legislative challenges, societal challenges, and personal challenges. The researcher recommended that the media promote the culture of society towards the assumption of women leadership positions.
