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
