This article asserts that the impact of generational replacement on gendered political participation patterns is not sufficiently taken into account by existing analyses of participatory gender inequalities. In this longitudinal study, gender and generational differences in French protest patterns are systematically examined. The article tackles two interrelated questions: what is the impact of generational replacement on gender differences in political action in France, and from an individual-level perspective, how do we explain the different participation levels from different generations of women and men? A longitudinal quantitative analysis of survey data from the European Values Study from 1981 to 2008 confirms the significance of generational differences as well as the multi-dimensionality of participatory gender differences.

1er paragraphe : place qu’occupent les femmes dans la vie publique en Europe s’est fondamentalement transformée au cours du XXe siècle. Leur niveau d’éducation ainsi que leur taux de participation au marché du travail ont considérablement augmenté. Toutefois, comparées aux hommes, elles s’engagent toujours globalement moins dans la vie politique. Cet écart mesurable et persistant, dit « gender gap » politique, est un paradoxe bien connu des sciences sociales. Or, les travaux existants se limitent souvent à examiner des cas isolés et ne proposent que rarement une perspective historique.

Lors des élections régionales de 2015, les femmes ont pris un peu plus de place : la parité est obligatoire et chaque liste électorale doit présenter une alternance à part égale de candidates et de candidats. À l’issue du scrutin, trois femmes sont élues présidentes de région (Carole Delga dans le Languedoc-Roussillon –Midi-Pyrénées, Marie-Guite Dufay en Bourgogne –Franche-Comté et Valérie Pécresse en Île-de-France) alors qu’il n’y en avait qu’une seule auparavant (Marie-Guite Dufay). Cette évolution laisse croire qu’en matière de responsabilités politiques au niveau régional, les femmes françaises, après avoir été longtemps écartées, jouent désormais un plus grand rôle face à leurs homologues masculins. Mais qu’en est-il de l’autre côté des urnes, du côté des électrices ? Les Françaises participent-elles davantage à la vie politique en 2015 qu’auparavant ? De même, les femmes d’aujourd’hui ont-elles désormais un rapport au politique similaire à celui des hommes ? (Premier paragraphe)

The results of the 2017 presidential and legislative elections represent an important shift in French politics. For the first time in the history of the 5th French Republic, the candidates of the two traditional governing parties were disqualified during the first round of the presidential elections. The duel between a centrist and a radical-right candidate in the second round of the elections constitutes an unprecedented configuration. Moreover, there was a record parliamentary renewal after the 2017 legislative elections, as well as a feminisation of the National Assembly with 38.8 per cent of women among the deputies. At the same time, abstention for the legislative elections reached a new record high. Overall, the results of the French elections in 2017 could point to major shifts in the party system, as well as to a renewal of the French political elite, and to an enduring malaise between French citizens and their political representatives.

Le « Radical Right Gender Gap » désigne la moindre propension des femmes à voter pour les droites radicales. C’était vrai du temps de Jean-Marie Le Pen, moins depuis que sa fille lui a succédé. À l’élection présidentielle de 2012, les électrices ont autant voté pour elle que les électeurs, toutes choses égales par ailleurs. Puis l’écart est revenu aux élections intermédiaires qui ont suivi et il a de nouveau disparu à l’élection présidentielle de 2017. Cet article cherche à comprendre ces variations en croisant les effets du genre, de l’appartenance générationnelle et des traits de personnalité sur le vote Le Pen, à partir des French Election Studies (1988-2017).

This paper takes a mixed methods approach to address the puzzle of the persistence of gender imbalance in political recruitment and elections in the case of French parity sanctions in the National Assembly Elections from 2002 to 2017. Based on a “concurrent nested strategy” (Cresswell 2003), we use a national level qualitative analysis of the candidate selection process and the implementation of parity sanctions against political parties; quantitative analyses of the socio-economic profiles of French representatives and candidates in the National Assembly in relation to their political party affiliation; and field-work in three legislatives constituencies, two in Paris and one in Burgundy on the candidate selection process for the 2017 legislative elections to identify gendered time and money constraints. The study shows the limits of parity reform, the resistance of established gendered practices in political parties at all levels and the value of using mixed methods analysis for solving the puzzle of gender imbalance in political representation and for the study of the Comparative Politics of Gender more broadly speaking.

In France, the constitution was amended in 1999 and the electoral law in 2000 to mandate that political parties nominate 50 percent female candidates for all elections. The new law stipulates that political parties present equal numbers of male and female candidates across all electoral districts for the National Assembly, with a financial penalty for non-compliance. 17 years after the introduction of gender quotas, this paper closely examines the impact of the French parity law by proposing an analysis on the evolution of the profiles of French representatives and candidates in the National Assembly from 2002 to 2012. Our analysis is based on data from election results as well as data from the Ministry of the Interior on each candidate and their alternates. In this paper, we investigate the evolution of these profiles of men and women candidates in relation to their party affiliation. While we focus mainly on inequalities between the sexes, we also investigate inequities by other socio-political factors.
