Drude Dahlerup's chapter argues that the literature suffesrs from 'conceptual streching' with respect to the meaning of substantive representation., and that this lack of clarity is an explanation for disparate findings about representation of women, as well as the negative conclusions of many feminists about the effectiveness of women in elected assemblies and governments at representing women.
