Gender and Democracy:

Rethinking equality and the backlash

Marta Fraile is Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Public Goods and Policies (IPP) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), where she is also acting as vice-director. She has held teaching and research positions at UPF, UAM, Juan March Institute, Scuola Superiore Sant’ Anna, CEU, and EUI. Her research spans across the fields of public opinion, political participation and, specially, gender & politics. She is currently conducting research on the diverse obstacles women find when getting involved in the political realm with a special focus on psychological mechanisms that are the product of gendered socialization processes, applying social role theory to the study of gender and politics. She is also conducting research on public opinion on gender inequality, and on gender identities in Europe from a comparative perspective. Her work has appeared in journals such as British Journal of Political Science, European Journal of Political Research, European Union Politics, the International Journal of Press/Politics, International Political Science Review, Political Psychology, Politics and Gender, Political Research Quarterly, Political Studies, Social Policy, and West European Politics, among others.
