Abstract: Using country panel data from 1991 to 2012, we make an attempt to explore whether women’s participation in politics affect female labor participation rates (FLPR). Our analysis suggests that countries characterized by more female’s participation in politics are associated with higher levels of FLPR. Moreover, we also find a U-shaped link between economic development and FLPR.
