Although Quebec's women have been able to vote and run for office since 1940, they still make up less than half of the members of the province's National Assembly and of its representatives in Canada's parliament. To explain this disparity, Tremblay (Political Science, University of Ottawa) looks at how Quebec's women gained the right to vote, and examines the problems faced by women when working within political parties and the current electoral system. The author shows how the parliamentary system shortchanges women (both nationally and in Quebec), and suggests strategies for increasing women's representation in legislative bodies. This scholarly book will interest students and scholars of gender and politics, as well as political activists and policy makers who are working to increase women's presence in politics.
