Women Representation in the Egyptian Parliament: Representation or Misrepresentation?

Amany A. Khodair, Salwa A. Farrag


Egyptian women who played a pivotal role in both, January 25th and June 30th revolutions were rewarded by achieving the highest female representation in Egypt’s parliamentary history in the last 2015 elections (89-14.9%). This paper accesses women's representation/mis-representation in light of this increase in numbers .Results show that the implementation of a one-time quota, that not only seeks to include women but several unprotected sectors of the society, guaranteed positive outcomes but warns from a decline if not implemented for at least one more time ensuring the continuance of women empowerment.

Keywords:-Women Representation – Egyptian 2015 parliamentary elections – Empowerment – Quota.
