Beyond the ususal suspects: the role of non-left, male and non-feminist MPs in the substantive representation of women

Onderzoeksoutput: Meeting abstract (Book)

Samenvatting

A focus on female representatives in leftwing parties and a concern for feminist issues in traditional studies of women's substantive representation have supported an overall conclusion that women, feminists and leftwing parties are fervent promoters of women's interests in parliament. In this article, however, we want to bring less obvious actors to the fore, more precisely non-left, male and non-feminist MPs. These actors, however, will not be uncovered when using the same old research concepts. We therefore test the added value of a new 'inductive' approach, studying 'critical actors' in women's substantive representation. In order to do so, we make use of the 2009-2010 PARTIREP study.
