Abstract

The current 113th Congress has the most women Senators in the body’s 225 year history: 20. Michele L. Swers’ book, Women in the Club: Gender and Policy Making in the Senate, is an in-depth look at the influence of gender on policymaking in government, which combines quantitative analyses of legislative behaviour with qualitative interviews with senate staffers and Senators themselves. Elizabeth Evans finds the book to be a fascinating read, one that will be useful to scholars of policymaking and gendered institutionalism alike.
