Another way to contextualize a gender quota in politics is by analyzing it through the framework of ideology. It can be argued that the underrepresentation of women in politics does not present an outward outrageous problem for the United States lack of forward modernity, but rather an inherent issue presented with our own philosophy. This philosophy is not going to simply change by adding creating a quota to add more women into Congress. Nonetheless, the implementation of a quota could possibly change the way in which women are perceived by society. In today’s politicized environment, a closer thinking of women’s roles in society as well as the political effects they have needs to be critically analyzed. Rather than just looking at women through a lens of helplessness or supreme power, the synthesis of women’s true effects on society need to be done in order to change an ideology fixed in America. This goes beyond the social context of the quota and brings in an ideological framework that suggests new implications of a gender quota in politics. Works Consulted
