Women in Politics

Despite making up roughly half the world’s population, women make up only slightly more than 20 percent of the members of the worlds legislative bodies. In a list of 163 nations ordered by the number of women in legislatures, Canada is ranked 64th and the United States 97th. Featuring engaging profiles of women leaders and a thoughtful examination of why women are underrepresented (emphasizing the US and Canada), this inspiring resource encourages readers to think about what the world would be like with more women leaders and how that might be accomplished, as well as empowering girls to seek leadership positions.
