The proportion of women in national parliament as a measure of women's status in society
Résumé Representation in decision-making is often used as an indicator of the wider integration of women in political and everyday life. This research note examines whether the proportion of women in national parliament really can be regarded as a measure of women’s status in society. It is argued that the proportion of women in parliament is a reasonably good indicator of status, with the benefit of being based on readily available data.
