  • Surprise! Governments that have more Women Reps are Less Corrupt!

    According to a new study published in the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, conducted by the researchers Chandan Jha of Le Moyne College and Sudipta Sarangi of Virginia Tech, governments that have more women representatives are less corrupt than the ones that are overwhelmingly run by men. 

    The Science Daily website explains that in a cross-country analysis of over 125 countries, corruption was lower in countries where a greater share of parliamentarians were women. The study further finds that women's representation in local politics resulted in lower bribes in regions with a greater representation of women in local-level politics in Europe.

    Aid Sarangi, an economics professor and department head at Virginia Tech said, "This research underscores the importance of women empowerment, their presence in leadership roles and their representation in government. This is especially important in light of the fact that women remain underrepresented in politics in most countries including the United States."

    The policy implications of the study point towards the need for promoting gender equality in general and promoting the presence of women in politics in particular. Previous research has established that a greater presence of women in government is associated with better education and health outcomes.
