Abstract:

Despite women constituting half the world’s population, they account for less than a quarter of the membership of national parliaments globally. Such descriptive or numerical under-representation can have consequences for substantive representation of women’s interests. I will first talk about previous research showing that greater political participation by women results in policy choices that are more relevant for women’s needs. I will then talk about some of the causes behind low female political representation, and I will explain my research examining whether women winning elections encourage other women to participate as candidates, maybe creating a virtuous cycle of greater women’s political participation in the future.
