'Brulé's study breaks new ground in exploring the economic effects of women's political representation. Her 'gatekeeper' theory shows how the presence of female officials in local governments in India shapes whether women are able to access their rights and improve their economic status. The result is a clear illustration that meaningful change for women requires shifts in social norms and practices – not just in formal legal reforms.' Melani Cammett, Harvard University, Massachusetts
'The study of property rights is undergoing a resurgence in political science. Rachel Brulé's stunning new book is at the forefront of this movement. Expertly combining the best tools of area studies and modern social science, Brulé shows how increases in women's political representation have altered social and property relations in India. Anyone interested in how low status groups can challenge a deeply entrenched status quo should read this book.' Timothy M. Frye, Columbia University, New York --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
