Article. Gender Equality as a Closed Case: A Survey among the Members of the 2015 Danish Parliament. In Scandinavian Political Studies, vol. 41, no. 2, 2018, pp.188-209.

Abstract: Despite almost unanimous adherence to the principle of gender equality in contemporary Denmark, a society with a long historical record of gender equality policies and almost 40 percent women in parliament, are there still divergences to be found among the members of parliament concerning gender equality principles and policies? This article argues that in order to identify underlying cleavages it is necessary to pose fundamental questions that go beyond the day‐to‐day disagreements on policy issues. Based on a new survey of the members of the Danish parliament, this study finds that the support for gender equality is not just a matter of lip service insofar as few MPs hold traditionalist views on women. However, the study reveals conflicting perceptions, left‐right cleavages and gender gaps, sometimes also within the parties. A new discourse is identified, supported by a large minority that includes all of the male MPs from the four right‐wing parties; this minority considers gender equality to be a ‘closed case’ – that is, as having by and large been achieved. This may provide clues to the puzzle of the stagnation in gender equality reforms in spite of the general support for ‘gender equality’. The article discusses the possible connection between the ‘closed case’ discourse, present neoliberal trends in society and the recent construction of gender equality as an ‘intrinsic Danish value’ – an argument familiar in other countries with a harsh debate over immigration.

Reviews of Has Democracy Failed Women?

“Drude Dahlerup offers an interesting, lucid and challenging arguments about the many relationships between gender and democracy. Wide ranging and well informed this book is clear and accessible. It should be read by anyone interested in either or both of feminism and politics.”
Joni Lovenduski, Professor Emerita of Politics, Birkbeck College
Authored by one of the pioneering scholars of gender and politics, Has Democracy Failed Women? offers a wide-ranging overview of developments and debates regarding women’s political empowerment in global historical perspective. Drawing on decades of research and extensive consulting experience, Drude Dahlerup concludes that democracy has failed women, but women can revitalize democracy, providing a powerful impetus for future studies and advocacy for more women in political life.”
Mona Lena Krook, Rutgers University

Reviews of Has Democracy Failed Women:

By Professor emerita Mary Evans, LSE:

Three 4-stars reviews on Amazon:
David Keymer:

“Dahlerup is not a ranter or a raver. She writes a cool, deliberate, decidedly temperate prose, and she doesn’t propose a cookie cutter solution to the problem.”

Worddancer Redux is more critical, however also gives the book 4 stars.
“A useful book as these short Polity books often are. I wish that the pacing had been better, though.”

Good overviews. 20 June 2018Published on

“This is a well-constructed overview of women’s issues ranging from suffrage to exclusion and everything in between. It’s short and succinct without being to general. I think it’s a successful presentation of talking points and arguments without getting too bogged down. From the talking points, you can go deeper on your own…”
