Patriarchy at the Pink Palace: Gender and Work Inside the Ontario Legislature
AbstractThis article offers an anthropological analysis of the gender politics inside Queen's Park, Ontario’s provincial legislature. Using ethnographic data, I explore how political actors reproduce larger social and historical patterns of structural sexism and inequitable distributions of power, while simultaneously producing a localized political culture of inequity inside the legislature. Résumé Cet article offre une analyse anthropologique de la politique entre les hommes et les femmes à l’intérieur de Queen’s Park, la législature provinciale de l’Ontario. En se servant de données ethnographiques, j’explore la façon dont les acteurs politiques reproduisent les modèles sociaux et historiques du sexisme structurel et la distribution inéquitable du pouvoir, tandis que simultanément une culture politique localisée existe au sein de la législature.
