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.

Review:

"Women and Legislative Representation assembles an outstanding group of scholars to assess the impact of voting systems on women's parliamentary representation around the world. It strikes an excellent balance between two interlocking goals: to present fascinating detail on a wide range of countries while facilitating comparison through a common analytical framework. A must read for scholars and practitioners who wish to understand the impact of constitutional or electoral design on women's access to political power." - Pamela Paxton, Associate Professor of Sociology, Ohio State University"Tremblay has assembled a broad set of carefully executed case studies and has masterfully drawn out the lessons from these disparate cases. This work hammers home the lesson that while electoral system engineering holds out the promise of improved representation, it cannot guarantee increases in women's representation. Rather, one must take into careful consideration several other contextual elements, with parties being an absolutely crucial part of the story. By providing such a careful set of studies that describe these interactions between electoral systems, parties, development, culture, and other relevant factors this work is assured of being a touchstone for work on women and electoral systems for years to come." - Richard Matland, Rigali Professor of Political Science, Loyola University Chicago
