Die Frauen sind keine Kategorie. Die Strategien zur Legitimation der Parität in Frankreich

Abstract : This article investigates the genesis of the rationale behind the demand for gender « parity » – numerical equality between men and women in elected assemblies – in France during the 1990s. Drawing from a supra-national legal framework promoting affirmative action policies toward women, the demand for parity has been increasingly justified by its supporters as a claim for the symbolic inscription of gender difference in political representation. This article analyzes the deployment of this specific rhetoric with regard to the discursive context in which the demand for parity emerged – characterized by the dominance of the « Republican universalism » model – and examines its effects on the translation of the claim into legislation at the end of the decade.
