dc.description.abstractThis study, drawing on interviews with 13 male and 15 female members of the Australian parliament, has two aims. The first is to contribute to knowledge about the nature of the Australian parliament, an institution which has seldom been subjected to gender analysis. This is particularly pertinent given the significant increase in women's representative status over the past decade. The second of the paper's aims is to demonstrate the efficacy of contemporary gender and organisational theory, particularly work on men and masculinities, for investigating questions related to women's involvement in politics. The paper draws on Joan Acker's ('Hierarchies, Jobs, Bodies: A Theory of Gendered Organizations', Gender and Society, 4, 1990, 139-58; 'From Sex Roles to Gendered Institutions', Contemporary Sociology, 21, 1992, 565-9.) notion of 'gendered organisations' to interrogate the data.
