Gender Equality and Political Participation in Ukraine after the Euromaidan revolution

Oleksii Polegkyi

Abstract


Abstract

In Ukraine, women’s political participation is traditionally a stiff challenge. Political culture, dominant values in society and stereotypes of gender roles play an important function in limiting women’s involvement in Ukrainian politics. De jure Ukraine has established the core elements of a legal and institutional framework for promoting gender equality and women`s political participation. De facto not much was improved in Ukrainian political reality in the post-communist era. After the Euromaidan revolution, Ukraine has undertaken a series of legislative changes aimed to ensure a balanced representation of men and women in power. How did women’s political participation change in reality?

Keywords: Ukraine, gender equality, women, political participation
