The Impact of Women in Congress

Debra L. Dodson

Gender and Politics

  • Major new examination of the effect of women on masculine institutions and masculine institutions on the women who work inside them
  • Combines extensive quantitative research with innovative qualitative analysis to provide explanations behind the findings
  • Uses two most diametrically different contiguous Congresses in the last half century to explore the strategies likely to maximize substantive representation of women - irrespective of women's proportional presence
