Abstract: This primer maps key areas of feminist analysis and intervention in governance. Based on existing research on the major factors that hinder women’s political participation, emphasis is placed on electoral systems, political parties, quotas and national constitutional mechanisms. These are also areas where the impact of the women’s rights movement has been felt. This primer therefore assesses the ways in which women’s participation in governance has been assured, the challenges arising from these approaches, and lessons therein.
