Abstract

Women are numerically under-represented in local and national legislatures across the world. This under-representation matters for reasons of justice, inclusion, diversity and symbolic value, with the exclusion of women's voices reinforcing a culture of gender inequality. This session explores women's representation in local to international contexts, assessing the reasons behind and solutions for improving the presence of elected women politicians.
