Gender@SAMF: Research seminar on gendered representation

Women are consistently underrepresented among party members, who traditionally make up the pool of potential candidates, among candidates nominated by political parties and at every level of most elected legislatures. In this research seminar, we explore explanations for this underrepresentation.
