Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Women represent a slight majority of Quebec s population, yet they continue to occupy a minority of seats in its National Assembly and in Canada s House of Commons and Senate. To explain why this is, Manon Tremblay examines Quebec women s political engagements from 1791 to the present. She traces the path that led to women obtaining the rights to vote and run for office and then draws on statistics and interviews with female politicians to paint an in-depth portrait of women s under-representation and its main causes. Her innovative account not only documents the significant democratic deficit in Canada s parliamentary systems, it also outlines strategies to improve women s access to legislative representation in Canada and elsewhere.

Synopsis : Quebec women have had the right to vote and run for office in provincial and federal forums for at least six decades, yet they occupy a minority of seats in Quebec s National Assembly and in Canada s House of Commons and Senate. In 2005, women represented just under one third of the members of the National Assembly and just over a quarter of Quebec s delegation in Ottawa. To explain this situation, Quebec Women and Legislative Representation examines Quebec women s political engagements from 1791 to the present. It traces the path that led to women achieving the right to vote and run for office and then explores why women, who represent a slight majority of Quebec s population, always form a minority in its parliamentary spaces. Although a number of factors are responsible for this deficit, statistics and interviews with women senators and members of Parliament identify two of serious concern -- political parties and the voting system. This innovative account not only documents the significant democratic deficit in Canada s parliamentary systems, it also outlines strategies to improve women s access to legislative representation. It will be of interest to students and scholars of gender and politics and activists and policy makers who want to enhance women s presence in politics.
