Do women politicians inspire others?
Does women's representation in politics lead to higher female political engagement?
Well, it depends on the context. In countries where women have thrived in politics and in social status, then yes, it can have a positive impact. But in countries where women's social status lags behind political advancement, then women representatives do not inspire women's political engagement!
Fascinating work from Dr Shan-Jan Sarah Liu and Dr Kim Yi Dionne.
