Improving Women's Political Representation in the Pacific: The Emerging Evidence

Haley, Nicole; Zubrinich, Kerry


This In Brief argues initiatives aimed at improving women’s political representation in the Pacific must be informed by the emerging evidence concerning the performance of individual women candidates. They must move beyond diagnostics that attribute women’s poor performance at the polls to culture, custom or the lack of a level playing field and seek instead to learn from the experiences of women who are elected, and those who poll strongly but fall shy of being elected.
