Chapter 9 examines the third benchmark: duration in a post. The evidence indicates women serve at least as long as men in their posts all else being equal. The analysis shows that political capital resources and other background traits have different effects for women and men. In particular, a few of the PCRs and background characteristics affect the duration of female ministers, but have no effect on the time male ministers serve. Moreover, the differences in time in post for ministers in a given administration, male and female, are relatively small and are not consistently explained by the PCRs and/or background variables examined in this study.
