Reviews

"Quebec Women and Legislative Representation fills a long-standing gap in the Canadian literature, which is full of acknowledgements that the Quebec context is different but short on attempts to unpack why. On this front, Tremblay's treatment of the topic is compelling.... This book will appeal to large segments of the discipline: specialists of domestic politics; graduate students who should see this book on their comprehensive exam lists, and women and politics scholars.... Its first sentence calls women's under-representation 'a problem' rather than a 'question' (1). Readers who do no approach this book with the same view will no doubt change their positions by its conclusion." -- Elizabeth Goodyear-Grant * Canadian Journal of Political Science (45:2) * Quebec Women and Legislative Representation fills a long-standing gap in the Canadian literature, which is full of acknowledgements that the Quebec context is different but short on attempts to unpack why.
