Dr Judith Bara's review of Sarah Childs and Paul Webb’s book Sex, Gender and the Conservative Party: From Iron Lady to Kitten Heels appears in this week’s THE.
She describes it as a “meticulous academic study” that questions whether David Cameron’s Conservative Party has changed significantly in terms of promoting gender equality. Childs and Webb argue that Cameron has “failed to capitalise on opportunities to raise the level of women’s descriptive representation further because of opposition within the party”.
