Women in Politics
Joni Lovenduski, Pippa Norris
Oxford University Press, 1996 - Political Science - 239 pages
The last decade has seen significant breakthroughs for women in British politics. Many of the old organizational certainties have gradually been abandoned. This book traces the problems, and the progress, experienced by women as they have actively sought political power. Women in politics nowhave the potential to make more than just a symbolic difference.
