9780199845347: How Women Represent Women: Political Parties, Gender, and Representation in the State Legislatures

Though the number of women elected to the U.S. state legislatures has increased substantially in the last forty years, researchers still struggle to connect the presence of women in the legislature to public policy outcomes that affect women. One reason for this struggle is that we lack a complete understanding of how political parties modify the relationship between women legislators' interests in representing women and the creation of public policies that concern them.
In How Women Represent Women: Political Parties, Gender and Representation in the State Legislatures, Tracy L. Osborn argues that political parties fundamentally shape the pursuit of women's policy issues in American politics. When women represent women, they do so as partisans.
Drawing on a comparative study of U.S. state legislatures using original election, sponsorship, and roll call data in nearly all ninety-nine state legislative chambers in 1999-2000, Osborn argues that political parties influence women legislators both on an individual and a structural level. First, women's party identities shape the types of alternatives they offer to solve women's policy problems. Second, parties, by holding majority control (to varying degrees) over agenda setting and policy creation, have the institutional ability to constrain and dictate which policy proposals have a chance to become laws.
How Women Represent Women provides a rigorous theoretical and practical understanding of what partisanship means and how parties fundamentally shape the pursuit of women's policy issues in American politics today.

About the Author:


Tracy Osborn is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Iowa

Review:


"Tracy Osborn's book takes existing research on women state legislators to the next level by exploring the institutional and political conditions necessary for them to 'make a difference' - or legislate in a substantive fashion on behalf of women. How Women Represent Women is a compelling book that will be important to the fields of women and politics, legislative politics, and American government."--Sue Thomas, author of How Women Legislate


"Tracy Osborn provides the most comprehensive analysis to date of how partisan identities and party control of legislative processes affect the attitudes and behavior of women legislators. How Women Represent Women serves as a clarion call for scholars to pay greater attention to how political parties influence the representational relationship between women elected officials and women in the electorate."--Susan J. Carroll, Professor of Political Science and Women's and Gender Studies, Rutgers University


"Tracy Osborn's book, How Women Represent Women, offers a real and important advance in our understanding of how women act as legislators in general and on behalf of the interests of women specifically. Her analysis is careful, and her theoretical insights are supported by an impressive array of original state legislative data. The result is a must-read for anyone interested in gender in American politics, and indeed for students of American politics more generally."--Christina Wolbrecht, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Notre Dame

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Though the number of women elected to the U.S. state legislatures has grown substantially in the last forty years, researchers still struggle to connect women s presence in the legislature to public policy outcomes that affect women. One reason for this struggle is that we lack a complete understanding of how political parties modify the relationship between women legislators interests in representing women and the creation of public policies affecting women. In How Women Represent Women: Political Parties, Gender and Representation in the State Legislatures, Tracy L. Osborn examines the two avenues through which political parties fundamentally affect the ways in which partisan women legislators pursue women s issues policies. She argues that political parties structure representation in two ways. First, women s party identities shape the types of policy alternatives they offer to solve women s policy problems. Second, parties organize the legislative process by holding majority control, to varying degrees, over agenda setting and policy creation, promoting some women legislators policy proposals over others. Osborn tests these two avenues of influence by comparing partisan women s legislative behavior toward the creation of women s issues policies across different party environments in the U.S. state legislatures. She uses original election, sponsorship, and roll call data in nearly all ninety-nine state legislative chambers in 1999-2000. She concludes that Republican and Democratic women offer different solutions to women s policy problems based on their party identities. Depending on which party controls the legislative process and how strongly they do so, this party control promotes one set of partisan policy alternatives over the other. Thus, political parties determine which women s issues policies become law. Ultimately, this book demonstrates how essential parties are to understanding how women elected to public office translate their interest in women s issues into substantive public policy.
