Gender, globalisation, and democracy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Women's presence in democratically elected assemblies around the world has increased, and women have been participating in the wave of democratisation during the 1990s. While the proportion of parliamentary seats held by women is not in itself a sufficient indicator of women's representation in politics, it is an important factor in reflections on gender equity and development.
