    Blev valgretten et gennembrud for kvinder i dansk politik?2015In: Før og efter stemmeretten: køn, demokrati og velfærd / [ed] Anette Borchorst og Drude Dahlerup, Frederiksberg: Frydenlund Academic, 2015, p. 105-126Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Valrätten blev ett genombrott för kvinnor som väljara, men inte för kvinnor som folkvalda, politiska representanter.  I de första parlamentsvalen efter rösträtten nominerade de politiska partierne endast en kvinna varja på valbar plats - en ny norm var skapad. Genom studier av partiprotokoller studeras i artiklen hur partierna tänkte och agerade, när kvinnorna blev valbara.

    Abstract [en]

    Is the feminist movement dead - again? The actual rise and fall of feminist mobilisation is usually described in terms of 'waves': the first wave, the second wave, and maybe a thrid wave. However, the theoretical foundation of this continuity thesis needs to be clarified. This article discusses three dimensions of continuity: organizational continuity. ideological continuity and continuity in terms of identification.

    Engendering representative democracy2011In: The Future of Representative Democracy / [ed] Sonia Alonso, John Keane and Wolfgang Merkel, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press , 2011, p. 144-168Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fifty years ago politics was totally male dominated. Since then, a process of engendering has taken place. Based on the feminist critique of gender blind democratic theory and practice, this article discusses the ‘how’, the’ who’ and the ‘what’ of representation. It is argued that a new global discourse of exclusion has shifted the focus from women’s (lack of) resources and political differences between women to the lack of inclusiveness of the political institutions themselves. To the normative link between the inclusion of women and other under-represented groups and representative democracy, a new link is added at the meso-level, stressing the procedural link between the how and the who. Gender quotas make such a link, opening up the ‘secret garden of nominations’ in making the important processes of selection and nomination of candidates for election more formalized and transparent.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter is part of a netbased scientific publication, issued on the occation of the centeniary of women's local suffrage in Denmark 1909.

    Drude Dahlerup's chapter discusses various theoretical explanations on the variation in women's political representation: the gender power theory, the time-lag theory and the saturation theory. The article concludes that changes in the discoursive frames as well as the degree of pressure from the women's movements must be seen as the most important factors.

    Tables show the historical development of women's political representation in the Nordic countries.

    Has Democracy Failed Women?2017Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Why are women still under-represented in politics? Can we speak of democracy when women are not fully included in political decision-making? Some argue that we are on the right track to full gender equality in politics, while others talk about women hitting the glass ceiling or being included in institutions with shrinking power, not least as a result of neo-liberalism. In this powerful essay, internationally renowned scholar of gender and politics Drude Dahlerup explains how democracy has failed women and what can be done to tackle it. Political institutions, including political parties, she argues, are the real gatekeepers to elected positions all over the world, but they need to be much more inclusive. By reforming these institutions and carefully implementing gender quotas we can move towards improved gender equality and greater democratization.

    The Critical Mass Theory in Public and Scholarly Debates2014In: Deeds and Words: Gendering Politics after Joni Lovenduski / [ed] Rosie Campell, Colchester: ECPR Press, 2014, p. 137-163Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The critical mass theory in political science derives from original works of Moss Kanter (1977), and Drude Dahlerup (1988). In spite of scholarly reservations about this theory  (it is argumed that women do not have to be a critical mass, for instance 30%, in order to make a difference on policies, and other factors than the numerical representation might be just as important), the theory lives on public debate, being used in discourses about increasing women's numerical representation and in arguments for the adoption fo electoral gender quotas. This article scrutinizes both the scholarly and the public debates on the cirtical mass theory.

    the development of gender and politics as a new research field within the framework of the ECPR2010In: European Political Science, ISSN 1680-4333, E-ISSN 1682-0983, Vol. 9, p. s85-S98Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Starting from the first 'Women in Politics' workshop, Berlin 1977, the article looks at the development of this new research field within the framework of the ECPR. From a young gender blind political science in the 1950-1970s until today's situation, where papers applying a gender perspective are presented in almost every ECPR workshop, and as many as 300 scholars participated in the First European Conference on Gender and Politics', organised by the ECPR Standing Group on 'Women/Gender and Politics'. The article scrutinises the discussion about 'the male oligarchs of the ECPR' and the accusation of 'separatism'.

    Starting from the historical changes in the 'acceptable minimum' of women in political assemblies and governments, this article analyses the discoursive controversies about the recent introduction in many countries of gender quotas in politics. Three positions are analysed. Firstly, the liberal oppositoin to quotas, secondly, the feminist opposition to quotas and finally, the feminist advocacy of quotas.

    Abstract [en]

    The continuous underrepresentation of women and of various minorities in elected political assemblies challenges classic democratic theory, which focuses on procedures, on the how, while neglecting the who of representation, be it in the ancient city-state of Athens or in modern deliberative governance structures. Political representation is embedded in the power structure of the political system. In most political systems the political parties are the gatekeepers to elected positions. When the voters enter the polling station, the nomination and rank order of candidates for election have already been decided on by the political parties. Historically, representation predates democracy, as in the representation of noblemen, priests, and the bourgeoisie in the old estates. The present discussion of equal representation of all citizens in relation to their share of the population is linked to modern democracy. Yet, increasingly, even senior non-democratic countries select their political assemblies through direct public elections, which has made the question of who the representatives are a global issue. This entry distinguishes between descriptive, substantive, and symbolic representation.

    Før og efter stemmeretten: køn, demokrati og velfærd.2015Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [da]

    Inkludering af kvinder i politik og demokrati er en proces, der

    stadig pågår, og som langt fra er afsluttet. Derfor er det mere

    relevant end nogensinde at gøre status over det ‘systemskifte’,

    der gjorde kvinden til politisk borger i Danmark i 1915.

    I Før og efter stemmeretten ser en række af Danmarks førende

    køns- og velfærdsforskere på, hvilken betydning 1915-grundloven

    fik for ligestillingen og inkludering af kvinder og andre

    marginaliserede grupper i det danske demokrati.

    Forfatterne fokuserer på sammenhængen mellem køn, klasse

    og etnicitet i samfundets inkluderings- og ekskluderingsprocesser

    – på både diskussionerne op til og efter 1915-grundlovens

    vedtagelse og på andre grupper, som gennem tiden har

    været eller stadig er udelukket fra det danske demokrati. Det

    handler f.eks. om indvandrere, der i dag er et vigtigt og brændende

    spørgsmål i den politiske debat.

    Bogen kombinerer historiske og politologiske kapitler med det

    mål at præsentere en bred vifte af tilgange. Den sætter fokus

    på 1915-grundlovens betydning – et emne, der har været stærkt

    underbelyst i forskningen frem til i dag.

    Bogen henvender sig til alle, der interesser sig for dansk politik

    samt spørgsmål om køn og ekskludering.

    Før og efter stemmeretten er redigeret af Anette Borchorst og Drude Dahlerup. Den indeholder desuden bidrag af Mai Hostrup Brunse, Niels Finn Christiansen, Jørgen Goul Andersen, Anette Eklund Hansen, Heidi Vad Jønsson, Nina Javette Koefoed, Niels Kærgård, Jytte Larsen og Jytte Nielsen.

    Electoral Gender Quota Systems and their implementation in Europe2011Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The report maps the diffusion of electoral gender quotas in the 30 EU/EEA countries. In 21 of the countries some type of gender quotas are in use, either legislated or voluntary party quotas. The report evaluates the effectiveness of different quota types in different electoral systems. Some gender quotas have resulted in major leaps in women‟s representation, while others had led to almost no change.

    The conclusion is that in order to be effective in changing women‟s historical under-representation electoral gender quotas have to fit the electoral system and should include regulations about the rank order of women and men on the electoral lists as well as sanctions for non-compliance.

    In general, the report reveals a mixed picture in Europe when it comes to women‟s representation. This up-dated version of the 2008-study (PE 408.309) shows that women‟s parliamentary representation increased only from 23.6 % in 2008 to 24.7% in 2011. In the most recent parliamentary election in 13 of the countries as well as in the election to the European Parliament women‟s representation increased, but ten countries experienced stagnation and in seven for the countries women‟s share of the MPs dropped.

    Eight case studies on Belgium, France, Germany, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom are included in the report.
