This book is a must-read for people interested in Canadian history, gender, and electoral politics in Canada. I cannot say enough about Stalled: The Representation of Women in Canadian Govenrments, which includes chapters written by well-known scholars, features a strong cross-section of expertise in Canadian political science, covers virtually every province and territory, and contains the different constituent groups within a Canadian context ... Well written and appropriate for lay and academic audiences, Stalled is the perfect addition to classes in gender and politics, to upperdivision courses in comparative politics focused on the status of 'women and politics, and to Canadian history courses. -- Janni Aragon * BC Studies, Spring 2015 *
