Parliaments made up of more than 80 per cent men have, since 2000, passed laws on contraception, abortion and domestic violence. Men have decided whether girls can wear the Islamic headscarf toschool, whether prostitutes should be criminalized rather than their clients, and whether the number of women involved in making these decisions should be increased. The relation between gender and policy is far more complex thanwhether or not women participate in decision making. Taking as a premise that all public policies are gendered, this book considers selected policy issues which illustrate aspects of the relationship between feminism, gender and policy; a relationship which is increasingly recognised as complex, dynamic and variable. The complexity is best amplified, for example, whenattention is focused on intersections of race and gender, class and gender, or both, in policy debates and decision making, raising questions about meanings of universalism, equal rights and citizenship
