Resource description

The gender balance in UK politics is one of the most unbalanced in Europe, as only 22 per cent of candidates standing for Parliament in the last general election were female. New research by the Hansard Society on gender and digital politics has looked at the gender difference in online political discussion and debates, and here Andy Williamson examines the findings of the research, concluding that a more conversational, collaborative and less combative model of politics is really what is needed.
