Backlist: Women in Parliament: Beyond Numbers

This 2005 edition of Women in Parliament: Beyond Numbers covers women’s access to the legislature in three steps. First, it looks into the obstacles women confront when entering parliament. Second, it presents solutions to overcome these obstacles and third, it details strategies for women to influence politics once they are elected to parliament, an institution which is traditionally male dominated.
