Money is assumingly one of the greatest barriers to women in the political recruitment process. The financial disadvantage of women is expected to constitute an obstacle for women’s entry into politics everywhere and especially in developing countries where women’s socio-economic status is disproportionately low relative to men’s.

In this seminar, we look into how money may be a problem for women’s political recruitment in different contexts, what have been done to overcome the problem, and whether the strategies have worked.

The discussions are based on a newly published book titled

Gendered Electoral Financing: Money, Power and Representation in Comparative Perspective
