'Overall this is a very tightly structured collection. The abstract and introduction of the book provide invaluable guidelines with regard to its layout and aims, and a concluding chapter further strengthens the comparative nature of the collection. [The book painted] a detailed picture of a messy reality-where no simple correlations exist between, for example, economic wealth and gender parity, or indeed between types of political regime and the feminisation of government.' - Gwendolyn Windpassinger, Journal of Contemporary European Studies, Vol. 20, 1, 2012
