Abstract:

After a chronic history of under-representation for women in France, a number of developments in 2007 appeared to offer new prospects for women politicians. Segolene Royal was the first credible woman candidate to contend a presidential election; the second application of the 'parity' law led to the election of record numbers of women to the French Parliament; and several women were appointed to key positions in the post-election government. This paper argues that all of these developments amount to significant progress, but are still insufficient to address the persistent problem of women's under-representation.
