Ina E. Bieber untersucht die Unterrepräsentation von Frauen in der Politik. Im Mittelpunkt steht die Frage, ob sich Frauen in der Politik nicht beteiligen können, wollen oder sollen. Auf theoretischer und empirischer Grundlage leitet sie ein umfassendes Analyseschema her, anhand dessen die Wahlchancen der Frauen bei Bundestagswahlen im Längs- und Querschnitt und experimentell betrachtet werden. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, dass v. a. makrostrukturelle Faktoren (z. B. Wahlsystem, Parteien) einen zentralen Beitrag zur Erklärung der weiblichen Repräsentation leisten. Mikrostrukturelle Faktoren wie der Familienstand, typische Frauenberufe, frauenspezifische Interessen oder geschlechtsspezifische Persönlichkeitseigenschaften können diese dagegen nicht ausreichend erklären.

Now, even though, with ladies' and women's dramatic flow into activity, the method of exclusion has develop into a piece subtler, a section extra complicated-and but, as Michael Messner exhibits us during this provocative e-book, no much less powerful. In Taking the sector, Messner argues that regardless of profound adjustments, the realm of game mostly keeps and keeps its longtime conservative function in gender kin.
To discover the present paradoxes of gender in activity, Messner identifies and investigates 3 degrees at which the ''center'' of recreation is developed: the daily practices of recreation contributors, the dependent principles and hierarchies of recreation associations, and the dominant symbols and trust platforms transmitted through the foremost activities media. utilizing those insights, he analyzes a second of gender development within the lives of 4- and five-year-old kids at a football establishing rite, the way in which men's violence is expressed via game, the interaction of economic pursuits and dominant men's funding in retaining the established order within the face of modern demanding situations, and the cultural imagery on the middle of game, relatively televised activities. via those examinations Messner lays naked the practices and ideas that buttress-as good as those who search to disrupt-the masculine heart of recreation.
Taking the sphere exposes the delicate and not-so-subtle ways that women and men jointly build gender via their interactions-interactions contextualized within the associations and logos of recreation.
Michael A. Messner is professor of sociology and gender reports on the college of Southern California. His prior books comprise strength at Play: activities and the matter of Masculinity (1995) and Politics of Masculinities: males in hobbies (1997).

Ihr Zentrum bildet die Auseinandersetzung mit der Geschichte und Gegenwart hierarchischer Geschlechterverhältnisse, aber auch die Frage nach deren Zusammenhang mit anderen Formen von Teilung, Ausschließung, Ungleichheit und Differenz. Seine Fragestellungen, Kritikformen, aber auch Krisen konturieren sich im Widerstreit der Positionen sowie im radikalen Bedenken der eigenen Grundlagen. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes, die einen Zeitraum von rund 25 Jahren umfassen, dokumentieren Versuche einer Positionsbestimmung feministischer Kritik unter den Bedingungen gesellschaftlicher Transformationsprozesse, die auch deren eigenen Existenzbedingungen verändern.
