224 neutral context than western women often do, they speculate: "having women serve in assemblies [through the reserved-seats system]... might have served a function analogous to the one performed by the women's movement in the West of legitimizing and stimulating women's assumption of new social and political roles" (pp. 189-90). That we have had some important questions raised, explored, and answered, but have been left wanting to carry the argument further, makes this an excellent study not only for the professional, but for students of political science, women's studies, and social science methods.
