Despite considerable efforts, progress on increasing representation is extraordinarily slow. There are 3 main explanations: 1. this is due to cultural beliefs 2. the problem is women’s socio-economic status. 3. there are obstacles for women in the electoral and parliamentary institutions that warrant introducing legislated minimum representation. Each has signifianct deficiencies.
