Women and Representation in Local Government opens up an
opportunity to critique and move beyond suppositions and labels in
relation to women in local government. Presenting a wealth of new
empirical material, this book brings together international experts
to examine and compare the presence of women at this level and
features case studies on the US, UK, France, Germany, Spain,
Finland, Uganda, China, Australia and New Zealand. Divided into
four main sections, each explores a key theme related to the
subject of women and representation in local government and engages
with contemporary gender theory and the broader literature on women
and politics. The contributors explore local government as a
gendered environment; critiquing strategies to address the limited
number of elected female members in local government and examine
the impact of significant recent changes on local government
through a gender lens. Addressing key questions of how gender
equality can be achieved in this sector, it will be of strong
interest to students and academics working in the fields of gender
studies, local government and international politics.
