Auf dem Weg zur Macht?

Zur Unterrepräsentation von Frauen im deutschen und U.S.-amerikanischen Regierungssystem

Author: Silke Kinzig

Publisher: Springer-Verlag

ISBN: 9783531153346

Category: Political Science

Page: 278

View: 5654

Silke Kinzig analysiert die Ursachen für die fortdauernde Unterrepräsentation von Frauen auf allen Ebenen des Regierungssystems auf der Basis eines Ländervergleichs zwischen Deutschland und den USA. Dabei wird deutlich, dass die Ursachen von Land zu Land unterschiedlich sind und deshalb nur unzureichend mit "globalisierenden Theorien" des Geschlechterverhältnisses erklärt werden können. Vielmehr sind vorgelagerte gesellschaftsspezifische Rahmenbedingungen (Rollenbilder, Motivationslagen u.ä.) wie auch politische Strukturen (Rekrutierungsmechanismen, Wahlsysteme, Wählerverhalten u.ä.) in den beiden Ländern zu jeweils unterschiedlichen Ausmaßen für die Unterrepräsentation von Frauen in der Politik verantwortlich.
