A Rising Public Voice: Women in Politics Worldwide by Brill, Alida

Politics is no longer completely a mans game. In recent decades, women around the world have begun to attain governmental office in perceptibly increasing numbers. How has this change come about? What is it like for these women, once they arrive in the halls of power still run by old rules and where men still occupy over 90 percent of the top positions? This book reveals, in their own words, the experiences and analyses of these women and brings them together for a truly global picture. In essays, profiles, and interviews, women at the highest levels of national governments describe election campaigns, party politics, and lawmaking; whether and how their agendas and political styles differ from mens; how, unlike men, they must manage family responsibilities as well as national ones; and how they face the often intense public scrutiny of their personal lives.
