Women in Politics

It's a hard question, can a political party be democratic if they have to have a certain percentage of Women... what about the best candidate ?
Also if your twice as likely to be voted in if it's a man running , as a party leader would you want to lower your chances of winning by putting up women candidates.....
Are you getting further away or a more equal form of democracy if you have to pick a candidate because of demographics instead of merit...
What if all the women are in city seats and none in the country, will that need to be addressed as well ?

Until something is widely accepted moves to kickstart the change to it is needed, e.g. feed in tariffs etc for solar panels.

Well, are parties democratic?

Who the bloody hell is actually voting here?

maybe the best way would be a percentage of members of a political party, would encourage woman to join them as well. if women are 50% of membership then they get 50% vote, 10% then 10% will be up to the women to get invovlved then if they want representation....

it'll never work. The way factions go the boys club would make sure women stay on the back bench or 3 or 4th on the ticket
