Women, Politics, and Power: A Global Perspective, Third Edition provides a clear, detailed introduction to women’s political participation and representation across a wide range of countries and regions. Through broad statistical overviews and detailed case-study accounts, authors Pamela Paxton and Melanie M. Hughes document both historical trends and the contemporary state of women’s political strength. Readers see the cultural, structural, political, and international influences on women’s access to political power, and the difference women make once in political office. The text acknowledges differences among women through attention to intersectionality and women from marginalized groups.

She is also writing a new book on the political dominance of men from majority racial, ethnic, and religious groups worldwide.

Review:

"This edition of Women, Politics, and Power is the best book that I have seen on the subject of women and politics.  Combining theory and data in a detailed yet very readable text, the authors show the progress that women have made in politics, where they stand now, and the obstacles remaining to full political equality for women, comparatively and globally.  It definitely warrants serious consideration by anyone teaching in this area."

Author: Stephen Robertson

"Women, Politics, and Power is a well-organized and clearly written text. Its multidisciplinary approach synthesizes research on women’s political power around the world, and its case studies provide valuable context and support."

Author: Miriam Levitt

A comprehensive global text on women in politics, this book provides a clear and detailed introduction to women's political representation across a wide range of countries and regions, addressing both women's parliamentary representation and women's ascendance to leadership positions as heads of state or cabinet ministers.
