Abstract:

This book seeks to identify the factors that influence the percentage of female parliamentarians, paying particular attention to the electoral system. The author seeks to understand the third wave of democratization of political systems, through the particular perspective of female representation in parliaments. Women in Legislative Representation: Electoral Systems, Political Parties, and Sex Quotas gives a complete and international perspective on the proportion and impact of women in national parliaments. More precisely, it seeks to identify the factors that influence the percentage of female parliamentarians, paying particular attention to the electoral system. Through the particular perspective of female representation in parliaments, editor Manon Tremblay and the contributors seek to provide an understanding of a profound political movement, that of the third wave of democratization of political systems. Revised and updated, this volume remains unique in its focus on electoral systems as an explanation for the proportion of women in national parliaments
