A Theory of Women’s Political Representation
The growing number of women winning legislative seats in Latin America augurs important questions about the causes and consequences of women’s representation. The introduction to this book articulates a comprehensive theory of women’s representation that provides a multifaceted and integrated model of women’s representation linking together formal, descriptive, substantive, and symbolic representation. It then describes how this theory will be tested empirically with data from Latin American legislatures in the remaining chapters of the book.
