Women, Power and Politics Press 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, UK 'I would recommend this book to students of gender and development, and of politics, and to feminist activists interested in whether the progress made in rich countries on women's greater representation in politics is sustainable.' - Sue Smith Gender& Development
