Explaining gender equality difference in a devolved system: The case of abortion law in Northern Ireland
MetadataShow full item record
Feminist political science, including that which considers institutions and institutional change (Krook and Mackay, 2010) tends to focus on positive movements. Similarly, literature which considers the gendered effects of devolution in the United Kingdom (the UK) has also largely emphasised the benefits of devolved governance, especially as regards women’s descriptive and substantive representation (Chaney, 2006, Chappell, 2002, Mackay, 2006, Mackay and McAllister, 2012). As such, there has been less consideration of negative case studies, or examples where devolution has resulted in inaction around a gendered issue.
