AOPSSS #30 “Figurines and Doyennes: The Selection of Female Ministers in Autocracies and Democracies”

In the thirtieth AOPSSS session, Hikaru Yamagishi (Yale) presented her new paper with Stuart Bramwell (Oxford) and  Jacob Nyrup (Oxford) that shows how democracy promotes women’s access into the highest echelons of power. We were all lucky to hear Karen Beckwith (Case Western), Susan Franceschet (Calgary), Malliga Och (Idaho State), and Sona Golder (Penn State) offer incisive comments about the paper. The public audience also offered a ton of helpful remarks. Looking forward to seeing the next version of the paper!
