Women’s representation in Asian parliaments
The presentation will examine the relationship between socioeconomic development, corruption, the level of democracy, and women’s parliamentary representation in contemporary Asia. Previous studies have argued that economic development offers women new opportunities and resources to participate in politics. Despite some notable gains in gender equality through this process, prosperous Asian nations continue to perform poorly compared to other world regions in terms of women’s parliamentary representation. The presentation will show that the level of women’s presence in legislatures throughout Asia is a result of multiple configurations of conditions beyond simply one or two explanations, including economic development or religion.
