Abstract

Political participation of women and their presence in the institutions, after decades of legal, social and cultural obstacles, is not a merely quantitative question: it really has to do with the quality of democracy. An elective assembly or a government body in which each gender are not equally balanced cannot really be called “democratic”, because in these conditions men and women are not able to contribute in an equal way to the “res publica” of which they are citizens. After having analyzed the troubled path, between the 19th and the 20th centuries, that gave Italian women active and passive voting rights, this volume focuses on constitutional and primary rules (contained in national or regional laws) in theme of equal representation, especially with a careful exam of preparatory parliamentary works in order to deepen the debate that originated them; many pages are dedicated to the judgements of Italian Constitutional Court that contributed to the development of the attention for equal opportunities in access to elected positions. Specific insights deal with equal gender presence in government bodies and the role of political parties (and of their inner rules) in constructing a democracy that is really based on equal representation.
