Reviews

“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

“The Feminist movement is like the sea: it comes in waves and cannot be stopped”. The actual rise and fall of feminist mobilisation is usually described in terms of ‘waves’: the first wave of feminism, the second wave, and maybe a third wave. However, the theoretical foundation of this continuity thesis needs to be clarified. Organisational as well as ideological continuity is at stake here.
