Abstract

What prevents more women from becoming active in politics? One potential answer is the ultimately sexist attitudes that pervade Britain’s political institutions, which Harriet Harman recently attempted to shed a light on. Ruby Lott-Lavinga argues that Harman’s experience tells a worrying story about sexism in politics, and that kicking out the old boys club is a necessary component of bringing more women into the political picture.
