This chapter examines the increase in women’s parliamentary representation in Croatia in the 2000 elections. Three main factors contributed to the increase in representation. These are electoral rule changes provided party leaders with incentives to reach out to female candidates, the success of parties that have consistently nominated more women in gaining control of the parliament, and the fact that women became more organized and better able to pressure party gatekeepers into recruiting women.

Keywords:   Croatia, women’s parliamentary representation, electoral system, elections, political parties
