Abstract

This contribution offers a detailed investigation of the substantive representation of women in Parliament in the 1960s and 1970s. The article presents evidence that although the speeches of women MP's deal with women's interests in a more interrelated manner and are more often feminist in intend, the defence of women's interests nor feminist issues is an exclusively female domain. The heterogeneity of the representatives in terms of party affiliation and sex, is responsible for the diversity of groups of women that receive political attention, the wide range of issues and topics addressed by the MP's, and the presence of different visions on how the situation of women could and should be ameliorated. The material for the analysis was drawn from the speeches of MP's during the budget debates in the Lower House (1960-1980).
