Description

Women have reached the highest levels of political office in Canada’s provinces and territories, but what difference has their rise to the top made? In Doing Politics Differently? leading researchers from across the country assess the track records of eleven premiers, including their impact on policies of particular interest to women and their influence on the tenor of legislative debate and the recruitment of other women as party candidates, cabinet ministers, and senior bureaucrats. By comparing the performance of women leaders and then contrasting it with the men who preceded and succeeded them, this innovative volume probes the importance of demographic diversity in top public office using a variety of powerful analytic lenses.
