Feminist Democratic Representation

Karen Celis and Sarah Childs

  • Advances feminist democratic design thinking, principles, and practices for parliaments and legislatures, as well as turning political institutions into "women's Houses"
  • Advances second generation feminist design, introduces a new type of representatives (the affected representatives of women), and provides two augmentations to parliamentary processes (group advocacy and account giving)
  • Incentivizes elected political representatives to "know more" and "care more" about women
