Beyond discussing the success and outcome of regional quota provisions and female public policy-making, international authors, coming from North America, Europe and Asia, investigate women’s role and contributions as change agents, female heads of government or state, parliamentarians as well as opposition leaders at different tiers, from the local grassroots to the top echelons of political power.

All contributions originate from the third international conference on Women and Politics in Asia, held in Islamabad, Pakistan, in November 2005. They represent an ongoing study effort and transnational discussion among experts, academicians, women politicians and NGO representatives, leaving the reader with a systematic, in-depth and comparative knowledge of the various dynamics, characteristics and challenges of the gender face of Asian politics.
