Book Description

31 Jan 2006
Working together across religious, ethnic, and class divisions, African women are helping to formulate legislation and foster democracies more inclusive of women's interests. "Women in African Parliaments" explores this phenomenon, examining the impact and experiences of African women as they seek increased representation in national legislatures. The authors' carefully constructed case studies allow cross-national comparisons of the range of strategies that African women have used to achieve greater involvement in national politics. A unique feature of the work is the voices of African women themselves, who explain how they achieved or continue to fight for electoral success, how they learned to work with lifelong adversaries, and how they have begun to transform their parliaments.

Product Description


"A thoughtful analysis of the factors conducive to women's participation in Africa's legislatures and what impact women actually have on policies.... well researched, well written." - April Gordon, Winthrop University "Women in African Parliaments explores a topic of tremendous importance. The insights and lessons of the case studies reveal a fascinating political story not only for those who study Africa, but for scholars of legislatures, gender, and politics in general." - Karen Ferree, University of California, San Diego"
