Still Counting: Women in Politics Across Canada (Signed)

By Trimble, Linda; Arscott, Jane

Broadview Press, 2003 FINE 1st Edition, 1st Printing Trade Paperback. Crisp, clean, tight, nearly perfect wraps. No markings but for co-author's inscription "Fall 2003, post-election, Best Wishes for Making a Difference in Manitoba, Jane". 6" x 9", 210 pages, index, appendix of Women Legislators and Senators 1916-1969 and 1970-1985. "Still Counting" explains why scholars and activists continue to count the number of women elected to Canada's legislatures and demonstrates that, by any measure, women are only halfway to equal. The authors assert that an "electoral glass ceiling" is keeping women at or below the 25 per cent mark, restricting women to less than half of the seats that would be theirs in a democracy committed to balanced, equitable, and fair representation. Moreover, little is being done to address this ongoing democratic deficit. Despite drawbacks, such as the "revolving door" for female party leaders and continued sexism in legislatures, the authors also show how women can, and do, make a difference in politics. .
