Chaney, Paul 2004. Women and constitutional change in Wales. Regional & Federal Studies 14 (2) , pp. 281-303. 10.1080/1359756042000247483

This article explores the relationship between women and constitutional change in Wales. It focuses on how women entered political debates and influenced the process of devolution, as well as the impact of the post-1999 structures, institutions and practices on women and women's political roles. The findings presented here show that recent constitutional reform has begun a process of rapid change. The role of women in national Welsh politics has been transformed through a political reprioritization of equality of opportunity matters and, within an international context, the achievement of gender parity in a national government forum for the first time.
