Sex Differences in Political Participation: Processes of Change in Fourteen Nations

Front Cover
Praeger, 1987 - Political Science - 195 pages

Here is the first book to treat directly sex differences in political participation with regard to economic development and cultural change. Using empirical data collected in fourteen nations, Christy not only discusses the sex differences in political participation within each nation, but compares these differences. Starting with the theoretical, she logically proceeds to specific surveys, trend data, hard facts, and solid explanations. In detailed discussions, she thoroughly covers political participation resources ... political egalitarianism and psychological involvement ... sex differences in political participation ... and variations.
