Summary
  • Political institutions profoundly shape political life and are also gendered. This groundbreaking collection synthesises new institutionalism and gendered analysis using a new approach - feminist institutionalism - in order to answer crucial questions about power inequalities, mechanisms of continuity, and the gendered limits of change.
  • "This superb book is one of those rare collections that moves a field forward. Scholars of institutionalism, for all their vital contributions to the social sciences, have given short shrift to inequality. Feminist social scientists have made inequality their core concern ... Krook and Mackay ... open up a pathbreaking terrain for the study of feminist institutionalism." -Mary Fainsod Katzenstein, Government Department, Cornell University, USA "A really innovative and important collection which shows, both theoretically and in rich empirical detail, the considerable challenge that feminism poses to contemporary institutionalism." --Colin Hay, Professor of Political Analysis, University of Sheffield, UK "Based on original research, the book shows how institutionalism can benefit from a gendered analysis of power, agency and change. A fascinating and productive synthesis that will be of value to students, scholars and policymakers alike." --Vivien Lowndes, Professor of Local Government Studies, de Montfort University, UK
