This chapter examines women’s representation in East and West Germany. The variables that explain when and where women achieve representation work as well in the East as in the West. In both regions, proportional party lists produce more women deputies than single member districts. Each party tends to elect similar numbers of women in both regions, suggesting that party recruitment and election policies have similar effect in both regions.

Keywords:   women’s representation, women candidates, East Germany, West Germany, political parties, party recruitment, elections, electoral system, women in politics
