Stalled free pdf Following significant increases in women's electoral representation in the 1980s and '90s, progress has stalled. Despite some high-profile successes at the provincial level, there are now only a few more women in Canada's parliament and legislatures than a decade ago. What has happened to the representational gains for women and why does gender parity remain so elusive?

To answer these questions, Stalled provides a detailed roadmap of women's political representation as candidates, office-holders, cabinet ministers, party leaders, and as representatives of the Crown at all levels of government across Canada. Chapter contributors explore the efforts of political parties, governments, and women's organisations to recruit more women candidates and to promote women into executive positions. They assess prospects for gender parity in political office in each jurisdiction and institution. In the concluding chapter, the volume editors re-examine, integrate, and analyse the findings using data from across the country.

The representation of women in elected and appointed offices is an important indicator of both gender equality and the overall health of democratic governance. By this measure Canada continues to fall short.
