Women as Constitution-Makers

Ruth Rubio-Marin & Helen Irving, Women as Constitution-Makers: Case Studies from the New Democratic Era (Cambridge University Press, 2019).
This collection offers, for the first time, comprehensive case-studies of women's campaigns for constitutional equality in nine different countries that have undergone constitutional transformations in the 'participatory era.' Against a richly-contextualized historical and political background, each charts the actions and strategies of women participants, both formal and informal, and records their successes, failures and continuing hopes for constitutional equality.
