Women, Power and Politics by Anne Stevens


Women, Power and Politics by Anne Stevens

A major new introduction to women's political involvement and role in the liberal democratic world drawing examples from a wide range of countries. Stevens assesses women's participation and representation in government, parliaments and at the grassroots. The cental focus throughout is on the issue of whether and how gender makes a difference.


'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
