This panel explores the variation in elite career paths between men and women across political jurisdictions at the individual level of analysis. The traditional barriers to individual-level data collection are rapidly evaporating at the advent of the era of big data analytics and “open government”. The impact on researchers’ ability to question and examine in detail the constraints and opportunities that exist within and around a political career are especially pronounced for those who study gender and politics as biographical data on both male and female political elites becomes increasingly available. Papers which address the determinants and consequences of elite appointment, duration and exit across country cases are welcome, as are those which address gendered career paths in the multi-level context.
