Abstract

Many democracies have relatively low levels of female representation in public life, including the UK, where less than a quarter of MPs in the House of Commons are women. Other countries have introduced quotas to address this problem, including Belgium. In this post, Bram Wauters, Bart Maddens and Gert-Jan Put explore how Belgian political parties responded after this reform was introduced.
