Gender Equality in Elected Political Office in Italy (by Giovanni Chiola) - ABSTRACT: This paper discusses the legislative steps enacted since 1946, when women first attained the right to vote in Italy, in the (as yet incomplete) process of achieving full gender equality in political representation. Appeals to the principle of substantive equality have not been sufficient to achieve this aim, as Article 51 and Article 117, section 7, of the Italian constitution have had to be amended. Moreover, the Constitutional Court’s interpretation has set general principles for achieving gender equality in political representation.
