Additional Book Details

"[Why Don’t Women Rule the World?] is unlike other texts in its comparative approach and strong theoretical underpinnings. It has interesting pedagogical features that will resonate with comparative scholars, Americanists and those who integrate public policy analysis into the course."

—Rebecca E. Deen, University of Texas at Arlington  



Why don’t women have more influence over the way the world is structured?  



Written by four leaders within the national and international academic caucuses on women and politics, Why Don′t Women Rule the World? helps students to understand how the underrepresentation of women manifests within politics, and the impact this has on policy. Grounded in theory with practical, job-related activities, the book offers a thorough introduction to the study of women and politics, and will bolster students’ political interests, ambitions, and efficacy.  



Key Features: 

A comparative perspective expands students’ awareness of their own intersectional identities and the varying effects of patriarchy on women worldwide.  
A variety of policy areas highlighted throughout the book illustrates how different theories are applied to real-world situations.            
Multiple political engagement activities keep students engaged with the content.
