“Women’s Representation in Latin America: The Difference Quotas Make.”

A talk by Jane S. Jaquette, Emeritus Professor of Politics and of Diplomacy & World Affairs and Bertha Harton Orr Professor in the Liberal Arts, Emeritus (1969-2005) at Occidental College.

Dr. Jaquette has edited seven books and published more than fifty articles on topics ranging from Peruvian politics to women and development, with an emphasis on comparative women’s political participation and women’s movements and democratization in Latin America. Her edited and co-edited books include: The Women’s Movement and Latin America: Participation and Democracy (1994); Women and Gender Equity in Development Theory and Practice (2006); and Feminist Agendas and Democracy in Latin America (2009).

Her essays have appeared in World Politics, Foreign Policy, Signs, Journal of Democracy, the International Feminist Journal of Politics and in many collections. She is writing a book on Power and Citizenship in Machiavelli and Hobbes and, with her husband, Abraham F. Lowenthal, is collaborating on a book on US-Latin American relations.

Dr. Jaquette holds an undergraduate degree in Political Science at Swarthmore College (1964) and a Ph.D. in International Relations at Cornell University (1971), writing her dissertation on the politics of development in Peru.
