Summary

"Women have interests in common. They also have interests in conflict. This book explores some of the points at which women's interests coincide and considers how they can be aggregated in order to shape political discourses, rules and institutions. Looking at experiences in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, this book will be of great interest to students and researchers in the fields of gender studies, political science, and comparative politics."--BOOK JACKET.
