Dr Rainbow Murray
School of Politics and International Relations

My research focuses on gender and politics, French and comparative politics, elections, representation and political parties. I am currently working on several projects. The first, entitled "The Impact of Gender Quotas on Parliamentary Representation", explores the impact of the French 'parity' law on parliamentary representation in France.

I am also working on media coverage of women candidates for executive office around the world; this project resulted in an edited book ("Cracking the Highest Glass Ceiling"). I am heavily involved in the French presidential and parliamentary elections. Other projects I am working on include a reassessment of our understanding of gender quotas, and the start of a larger study looking at how gender quotas change representative democracy over space and time.
