Can Quotas of Women Parliamentarians Tackle Gender Inequality in Developing Countries?

Can Quotas of Women Parliamentarians Tackle Gender Inequality in Developing Countries?

Repost0

About the show

Just after Brazil elects its first female president, we debate whether positive discrimination should be used to fast-track women's involvement in political decision-making.

Almost one in five parliamentarians worldwide are now women, a 73 per cent increase over the last 15 years. But less than 6 per cent of the world's elected heads of state are female. Meanwhile a report to world leaders attending the recent Millennium Development Goals (MDG) Summit in New York detailed the 'sluggish' progress made by the global community in achieving gender equality. Is it time for more quotas to transform gender relations in poor countries?
