Abstract

Women continued to be under-represented in public life, across many different types of organisation. In the first post in Democratic Audit’s new Gender and Democracy series, Adele Baumgardt believes this under-representation undermines the idea that women’s equality has already been achieved. With a specific focus on Wales, which led the world in its achievement of a gender-balanced legislature, she argues that new positive action measures are needed to ensure progress in women’s representation continues.
