Although highly controversial, electoral gender quotas have been introduced recently in a large number of countries around the world to improve women's representation in national parliaments. Women, Quotas and Politics offers the first global comparative analysis of the new trend to introduce gender quotas in public elections wriiten by researchers from all major regions in the world. This book presents cutting-edge research about the discursive controversies and actual implementation processes in countries with quota provisions. Providinga quantitative and qualitative assessment of these quotas in a variety of political systems, from developing nations and new democracies to established democracies, the contributors evaluate how they have been implemented; where these quotas have succeeded and failed; and how they can contribute to the political empowerment of women.
