Women in Politics is an international database on women in politics, created and maintained by the Inter-Parliamentary Union with contribution from the United Nations Development Programme. It contains citations (many annotated) to articles, books, reports, brochures, legal instruments, and other types of material dealing with women's participation in political life. It can be searched by type of document, country, region, organization, author, broad subject, keyword, language, year of publication, or periodical name. There are more than 1,000 citations in the database, with about 120-150 being added each year. Most of the material indexed is in English, French, or Spanish, with some others in Arabic, Dutch, Finnish, German, Italian, or Portuguese; subject headings are all in English. A separate page links to Web sites on women in politics. (Updates vary)
