Women, Politics and Constitutional Change provides a timely and revealing account of women's constitutional strategies and struggles. It compares and contrasts the latest constitutional developments within the United Kingdom with women's past and present struggles in countries including Canada, the United States and South Africa. Women's constitutional reform interventions raise numerous issues from the discussion of reforms to institutional politics and the restructuring of new Assemblies and Parliaments to the relevance of the non-institutional political: the role of civil society, social movements and coalitions. Through theoretical engagement and practical experiences, the contributors develop crucial arguments on the nature and effect of constitutional change, equality, women's rights and representation. This shows how women, through their words and deeds, have challenged and shaped the nature and forms of constitutionalism.
