A major new introduction to women's political involvement and role in the liberal democratic world drawing examples from a wide range of countries to illustrate key common features and divergences. Anne Stevens not only assesses the extent of women's participation and representation in government, and in parliaments but also in grass roots politics. The central focus throughout is on the issue of whether and how gender makes a difference.
ANNE STEVENS is Professor of European Studies, Aston University, UK.

Editorial Reviews

"An excellent and up-to-date assessment of women's political participation and policy impact internationally and its wider social and economic context.  Highly readable but thoughtful, Anne Stevens' book is also admirably sensitive to broader theoretical debates and developments." -- Vicky Randall, University of Essex and author of Women and Politics
