This chapter looks at how there is no shortage of commentary about women's presence in decision-making groups. Part of the challenge of answering the lingering questions about women's voice and authority is methodological. For example, many of the studies that take up the question of gender do not disentangle group gender composition from individual gender or do not involve sufficient variation in gender composition to allow for a full understanding of group-level factors. In particular, there are many ways that gender composition and decision rule could be correlated with other possible causes of women's participation and substantive representation at a meeting. The chapter takes up these issues in detail by cataloging a number of methodological gaps in existing studies.

Keywords:   women, decision-making groups, authority, gender, group-level factors, substantive representation, gender composition
