This chapter explores the under-representation of women in post-communist Hungary. Female under-representation is attributed to a combination of electoral, cultural and party system factors. Women fare best when non-rightist parties are able to engage in ticket-balance strategies. The built-in majoritarian bias of the Hungarian electoral system discourages party gatekeepers from become pro-active in female recruitment.

Keywords:   Hungary, women’s representation, anti-feminism, majoritarian system, female legislative recruitment, political parties, electoral system, women in politics
