A positive feedback loop: men’s historical dominance of Zambian politics

Evans, Alice (2014) A positive feedback loop: men’s historical dominance of Zambian politics. The Resources for the study of Democracy in Africa.

Full text not available from this repository.

Abstract

In this post, Alice Evans argues that women’s historical paucity in Zambian politics was largely due to gender divisions of labour. The colonial model of male breadwinner and female housewife fostered assumptions that men were more competent in socially valued domains, thus more suited to leadership. Alice is a Fellow in Human Geography at the London School of Economics.
