This edited collection brings together many of the top scholars in the field to write original pieces on women and Canadian electoral politics, from a variety of perspectives. The focus of the book is formal politics: parties, political candidates, and elected officials. The book is divided into four sections covering the electoral system; parties and represenation; values and attitudes; and women and the media. Articles range from the role and influence of television in the election campaigns of female candidates to socio-demographic profiles of women candidates since the winning of suffrage to the end of the last century.
