Résumé
EN
15 years after French parity law was passed, this article performs a systematic, longitudinal, sex-based comparative analysis on the profiles of French candidates and deputies of the National Assembly. We study the evolution and transformation of their socio-demographic profiles from 2002 to 2017. While our main focus is on differences with regard to sex and party affiliation, we also investigate inequities related to other socio-demographic factors. Our quantitative analyses show that despite considerable improvement in women's political representation, there remain important pathdependent patterns of gendered treatment of candidates among the seven major French political parties.
