Abstract

While scholarship on the gendered disposition of the core executive is breaking new ground in the study of gender and the executive (Annesley and Gains 2010), there is still little qualitiative comparative research on this topic. This paper adopts an institutionalist approach to compare the formal and informal rules which shape the recruitment of female ministers in two countries: Australia and the UK.
