Abstract:

This comparative, quantitative analysis complements the varied literature concerning women in politics by illustrating the importance of two domains in that literature: state socio-economic development and political-cultural factors. This analysis supports the observations made in some case studies that women's representation is bound by certain socio-economic parameters. Factors which operationalize the socio-economic development of a state are found more important than political-cultural dimensions of state politics. By supplementing case studies with the comparative aggregate data of this paper, one contributes to a more holistic understanding of women in state politics.
