100 Questions about Women and Politics

Type: BOOK - Published: 2018-09-30 - Publisher: McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP

Both yesterday's suffragists and today's feminists have battled for women to vote and hold office, and their successes have made it possible for countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Iceland, Liberia, and the United Kingdom to have female heads of state. Despite these notable advances, women are still largely underrepresented in parliaments and governments around the world. Why, after so many years of feminist struggle, are women still obstructed from full political citizenship by a glass ceiling? Manon Tremblay's 100 Questions about Women and Politics discusses electoral politics in Canada and abroad, focusing on women's rights to vote and run for office in legislative elections, political parties, voting systems, electoral quotas for women, and participation in parliaments and governments. Against a background of observations taken from academic research, Tremblay uses an innovative approach by dividing her book into 100 questions and answers to address a range of important issues. Are electorates sexist or lesbophobic? Are family responsibilities a real obstacle to women's engagement in politics? What strategies are available to increase the number of female politicians? Are gender quotas democratic? Once elected to office, do women represent women? How does women's political citizenship in Canada compare to that in other countries? A timely book on the unfinished work of representative democracy, 100 Questions about Women and Politics takes a comprehensive yet concise approach to demystifying the major issues dominating the study of gender and government.

Despite increased international rhetoric in support of women's equality, women currently comprise a disproportionate share of the world's illiterate, poor, displaced, underpaid, underemployed, and underrepresented populations. And though women have gained visibility and influence in a wide array of political and economic arenas, their position and status in society are still far from equal to those of men. On the other hand, since the post-World War II era, there has been a global explosion of women's activism on behalf of equality, liberation, and better living conditions--women are standing up not only for themselves, but also for other disempowered groups. Participation and Protest provides an overview of the ways in which women participate in institutionalized politics, social movements, and revolutionary movements. It discusses key policy issues that affect women, such as equality in the workforce, maternity and family leave policies, and reproductive rights. Exploring the critical concerns that confront women in the world community--including economic development, war, and international law--the book analyzes the role of women in nationalist and fundamentalist movements, and also considers women's rights in the broader context of international human rights. Offering global coverage of this important subject, Participation and Protest examines the impact of women in politics--and politics' impact on women--from a cross-national, comparative perspective.

Type: BOOK - Published: 2008 - Publisher: NIAS Press

This is the first study in English to analyze in detail the position of women in Thai politics. It subjects various dimensions of women and politics in Thailand to both theoretical and empirical scrutiny; in so doing, it draws together into one volume previously fragmented research in this field. Leading scholars in the field address the challenges, obstacles, and opportunities for increased women's political representation in Thailand. Will Thai politics be different with an increase in the number of women politicians? What are the possibilities for Thai women to take proactive initiatives that aim to transform Thai politics into being more gender aware and equal? In seeking to address these and related issues, the analysis brings together a complex interplay of factors, such as traditional Thai views of gender and politics; the national and local political context of the new Thai constitution of 1997; and recent experiences of selected women politicians in the legislative and executive branches of Thai government.

A unique two-volume examination of the progress women have made in achieving political equality, Women and Politics around the World addresses both transnational and gender-related issues as well as specific conditions in more than 20 different countries. Women have made significant progress toward equal political representation in the United States and around the world, but true equality may be a long way away. Though women represent more than half of the world's population, they account for only 15 percent of its elected officials, and their particular concerns often go unaddressed in the political sphere. Women and Politics around the World: A Comparative History and Survey is an exploration of the role of women in political systems worldwide, as well as an examination of how government actions in various countries impact the lives of the female population. Women and Politics around the World divides its coverage into two volumes. The first looks at such crucial issues facing women today as health policy, civil rights, and education, comparing conditions around the world. The second volume profiles 22 different countries, representing a broad range of governments, economies, and cultures. Each profile looks at the history and current state of women's political and economic participation in a particular country, and includes an in-depth look at a representative policy. The result is a resource unlike any other - one that gives students, researchers, and other interested readers a fresh new way of investigating a truly global issue. This title features: topical essays on a broad range of gender-related policy issues, written by international scholars; focused explorations of women's political and economic progress in more than 20 individual countries; more than 70 photographs of both elected officials and women from all walks of life in countries around the world; more than 50 tables and charts presenting relevant data; and, approximately 20 sidebars
