The lure of pork-barrel politics and of earmarking - supporting a bill in return for federal funds - perpetuated the idea that all that drove members of Congress was re-election. (PAPER 2). Nick looks at whether all feminists think alike, posing the question: Is feminism a single doctrine? / ˈfem.ɪ.nɪ.z ə m / us / ˈfem.ə.nɪ.z ə m / the belief that women should be allowed the same rights, power, and opportunities as men and be treated in the same way, or the set of activities … The founding fathers believed that the US constitution and its elaborate set of checks and balances would encourage compromise and bipartisanship. Referendums are not the answer, but Nick argues that other forms of direct democracy could complement representative institutions and strengthen democratic legitimacy. Is the prime minister effectively a president?

The experience of Thatcher, that most domineering of PMs, should serve as a warning sign to those who choose to ignore their cabinet.

Indeed, some early Republican reformers were wary of the Westernizing aspect of modernization, fearing that encouraging women to be active in public As feminism has a theory of power but lacks a theory of the state, so marxism has a theory of value which becomes class analysis, but a problematic theory of the state. While most feminists accept that the state can play a role in ending gender inequality, they disagree on how the state should go about it, and some even question whether they should even try. This matches the level of many corporate board quotas, including that of France, that mandate a forty percent floor for men or women. Happy to report that no rebellion became extinct during the making of this podcast, which is hardly surprising since we mention Extinction Rebellion on a number of occasions, along with 20 -odd other campaigns. But it clearly did not sit at exactly half. Forty percent establishes a floor for either of the two most common sexes, men and women. We also examine the impact of Trump upon the federal-state relationship, as well as Supreme Court decisions. Indeed, the Attlee government was riven with internal divides, as the resignation of Nye Bevan showed. This show was recorded in 2017 when The A Level Politics Show was very young indeed. The problem is this – at a certain point in time, advancing women may come at the expense of sex equality, as it did with Hidalgo’s women-dominated leadership team. The Politics of State Feminism addresses essential questions of women's movement activism and political change in western democracies.The authors—top gender and politics scholars—provide a comparative analysis of the effectiveness of government agencies and women's movements regarding women’s policy issues—if, how, and why they form a kind of state feminism.

In this first episode of our new series, Nick delves into liberalism (PAPER 1), and whether modern and classical liberals agree about the role of the state. How powerful are pressure groups and what are the factors that affect their success? After all, Brexit wasn’t an issue in 1979! His right hand man, Dominic Cummings, is whipping ministerial advisers into line. Do elections change anything? Here’s the key point, though.

My answer is when there are nine.”. While the listener may not agree, the purpose of The A Level Politics Show is to model persuasive argument so that students’ essays take up positions, dismiss views they disagree with and exude opinion. It is time, I argue, for a federal UK. Too many constitutional constraints exist to allow for an imperial presidency. Ultimately, each election is decided by a unique set of factors.

Yet it is also right to acknowledge that asymmetry, coupled with the long-standing Barnet formula, has not produced universal love for the new political landscape. Rather, it is the cause of it. State feminism. Yet the ideological distance between the two main parties and an utter refusal to compromise on even the most basic proposals has lead to gridlock, bitterness and dysfunction. It has a theory of power: sexuality is gendered as gender is sexualized. (PAPER 3), After the Lib Dem victory in the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election, held as a result of a successful recall petition of its MP Chris Davies, Nick looks more closely at whether the Recall of MPs Act 2015 is beginning to find its feet. A gender balance rule works in part by protecting men from potential exclusion. A fine of that scale could only be for a truly grave violation of the law. State feminism was concerned primarily with women's public eman- cipation, but little concerned with their private lives as women. Nick is joined by Matthew Phillips to debate whether the UK should adopt a US-style codified constitution. Hidalgo’s defense echoes Ginsburg’s line: decision makers must “promote women with determination and vigor because the gap is still very big.” It’s a fair point, because in France women are still sorely underrepresented in civil service leadership positions, with only 31% of such positions. How important is presidential persuasion? We hope like the new jingles. If we were to judge success by what we preferred, it is likely that we would view presidents very differently. Enjoy! Or being invited to a White House dinner? It varies according to approval ratings, the type of government, national events and electoral mandates.

Nick argues that if we judge the UK by posing these sorts of questions, then it is fair to argue that it is indeed suffering from a democratic deficit, made even more so by the collision between direct and representative democracy in the EU referendum, which has laid bare all the faults of the UK political system. Referendums are also a threat to representative democracy. Given that women increasingly hold a dominant number of higher education degrees in most developed countries, it would not be such a far-fetched fear on men’s part. Nick looks at the inbuilt tension between the US government and the 50 states. ... By rejecting persuasive methodologies simply because they have been used to secure the assent of women to the male experience and viewpoint, MacKinnon ultimately dooms her enterprise." How should the United States Supreme Court arrive at decisions? Are political parties good for democracy? Yet Corbyn’s elevation as party leader reflects a broader trend, perhaps started by Blair himself when he pressurised his chancellor to spend more on the NHS, of a Labour Party that is moving to the left, where it will likely stay for some time to come. Yet rather than showing a lack of necessity to persuade, these approaches indicate the weaknesses of presidents when persuasion is not possible or desirable. In March, following another case of femicide, online users highlighted the link between gender-based violence and child abuse, particularly in instances when COVID-19 restrictions were accompanied by an increase in domestic violence. What did Hidalgo do? The founding fathers gave many powers to Congress in a bid to overcome tyranny. Thus, the two constitutions are more similar than one might think.

Is it one woman in a group, as India’s quota for women on boards mandated in 2013? While an English Parliament should be seen for what it is - a reactionary and narrow-minded attempt to shut people out of decision making - regional assemblies would do the opposite. Parliament is good at the former but not at the latter. Many feminists have believed that government is the natural ally of the women’s movement. Sex as such is not liberating for women. Source questions can be tricky to plan and even harder to deliver.

We will focus on UK politics and US politics, and also look at political ideologies, including liberalism, socialism, conservatism and feminism. However, the Welfare State consider that the women who have to receive the goods and the services are the “wives” and the “mothers”. In this episode, I try (badly) to introduce you to the “disagree/agree” sandwich format of writing ideologies essays. To what extent do Socialists agree about the means and ends? Proponents of this view argue that “need” is better than “neatness”. Progressive economists sometimes view state and market relationships after World War II as relatively ideal, with the state supporting economic activity and helping the market economy thrive. The reason Norway’s statute served as a model for so many jurisdictions is that it focuses on gender balance itself. Many of her earlier cases emphasized ways in which men suffered from sexism. It was why they created the Electoral College in the first place - to protect the people from themselves. We hope you like the new icon - a Lego White House built by my own fair hands (aided with instructions from the Lego company itself).
