Item description for From Feminism to Class Politics by Audur Styrkarsdottir...
Why did it take so much longer for women than men to win the vote? Why did it take women so long to be elected in any numbers to national legislatures? What has been the political significance of women's entry into national legislatures? By combining theories and studies on international women's movements with an empirical study on the women's lists in Reykjavk, an attempt is made to answer these questions by connecting theory, history and practice. The answers are sought by examining an aspect of the development of parties ignored by most political scientists, namely the relationship between women's suffrage, party politics and patriarchal power.
