dc.description.abstractThis book thus proposes a timely assessment of the adoption and diffusion of gender quotas in three main domains (elections, administrative bodies, corporate boards) and in thirteen European countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden. This selection covers eight of the ten EU-member countries implementing legislated electoral quotas. It represents a wide range of situations with respect to women's historical and actual participation to representative politics, and, beyond the realm of politics, with respect to the degree and nature of gender inequalities in each country. Indeed, our broad comparison aims at surveying the main gender regimes found in Europe and questioning the extent to which they have facilitated the adoption and spread of gender quotas and/or been affected by it. The purpose of this large comparison is to allow for a broader view of the “gender quota revolution”: its genesis, its outcomes and its possible meanings in terms of conceptions of gender equality and women's citizenship in Europe.en
