About this product
- DescriptionWomen represent a slight majority of Quebec's population, yet they continue to occupy a mirity of seats in its National Assembly and in Canada's House of Commons and Senate. To explain why this is, Man Tremblay examines Quebec women's political engagements from 1791 to the present. She traces the path that led to women obtaining the rights to vote and run for office and then draws on statistics and interviews with female politicians to paint an in-depth portrait of women's under-representation and its main causes. Her invative account t only documents the significant democratic deficit in Canada's parliamentary systems, it also outlines strategies to improve women's access to legislative representation in Canada and elsewhere.
