"Unmaking Political Patriarchy through Gender Quotas?" Policy Brief, Publication Series: "Reviewing Gender Quotas in Afghanistan and Pakistan (2015). The author uses empirical studies to evaluate effects of various gender quota strategies on societal acceptance of female politicians in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The use of qualitative research methods, including interviews and semi-structured questionnaires, enabled the gathering of relevant data from different groups of non-state and state activists of both genders. Fleschenberg's hypothesis denotes that gender quota strategies cannot change the status of women, especially politicians, in these republics.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
