Promotional Information

Women have made some progress toward equal political representation in the United States and around the world, but true equality may be a long way away. Though women represent more than half of the world's population, they account for only 15 percent of its elected officials, and their particular concerns often go unaddressed in the political arena.

About the Author

Joyce Gelb is professor of political science at The Graduate Center, City University of New York, New York, NY. Marian Lief Palley is professor of political science and international relations and professor of public administration at the University of Delaware, Newark, DE.

Reviews

"Women have made advances toward equal political representation in many countries but issues remain around the world-and synthesizing them under one cover is the 2-volume survey Women and Politics Around the World. From transnational and national gender-related issues to specific conditions in different global communities, this is a powerful resource for students and researchers interested in women's experiences in world politics and social life." - Midwest Book Review "Women and Politics Around the World provides thoughtful, scholarly, and accessible analysis, much of which is not easily located elsewhere in such breadth. I highly recommend this title for any institutions with undergraduate programs in women's studies, political science, or international affairs." - Feminist Collections "In this ambitious, exciting two-volume set, editors Gelb and Palley provide readers interested in women in politics with a stunning set of articles... an extraordinary achievement; the editors have included many established scholars in the field, as well as many newer scholars. The volumes are remarkable in that they introduce not only new ideas, but a new generation of feminist scholars. Highly recommended. All readership levels." - Choice "This is an engaging work which tells the story of women's political lives rather than breaking it down into a series of encyclopedia entries. It would be a useful addition to political science, history and gender studies collections." - Reference Reviews
